When Freedom And Family Are On The Line
A domestic violence charge in Georgia is seen as an act of family violence and is treated as a serious crime. Generally, a protective order may be filed against you or used as a condition of bond and you may lose the right to contact your family. Protect yourself and preserve your rights by contacting an experienced defense attorney.

Am I Going To Jail?
You have a right to a fair trial, and being charged with domestic violence does not mean you will be sentenced to jail immediately, if at all. Georgia law is designed to protect families, children and housemates. It is also designed to provide chances for rehabilitation.
If you are charged and convicted of domestic violence, you will be faced with attending domestic violence classes, community service and a fine or/and a yearlong jail sentence. Depending on the circumstances and your history, you may qualify for pretrial diversion.
In cases where a protective order is taken against you and you are convicted of violating that order, you may be faced with a misdemeanor charge. Violating a protective order may subject you to aggravated stalking, which is a felony.
Consulting with a lawyer will provide you with more insight on your specific case and help you determine your best strategy for resolution.
