Representation For Your Escalated Family Disputes
If you have been charged with domestic violence, you need to take the matter seriously. You are likely experiencing consequences through a temporary protective order (TPO). Understanding what you need to do to stay in compliance with that TPO and build a strong defense call for the help of a skilled and experienced attorney.
If not handled correctly, terroristic threats and criminal trespassing charges related to family violence with serious long-term effects may ensue. Meanwhile, failure to comply with a TPO could result in a felony charge for aggravated stalking. At The Law Offices of Zachary J Burkhalter, PC, we help clients in Rome and surrounding areas fight charges related to domestic abuse.
Defense Against Family Violence Allegations
When law enforcement officers are called into a family violence situation, they can choose to arrest an aggressor, despite another person’s refusal to press charges. If you face allegations of violence in the home, we can help you determine your best course of action for favorable results.
Experienced representation is vital to fight charges that include:
- Domestic violence
- Terroristic threats
While you may not agree with the terms of a domestic violence order, you may face additional criminal charges if you violate established terms. For example, since your rights to firearms and ammunition are restricted under a Georgia TPO, you may not go hunting. Violation of such an order would result in an additional criminal charge.
