Consequences of Domestic Violence

The Consequences of Conviction on a Domestic Violence Charge

Domestic violence isn't like other crimes. A conviction can affect your ability to get a job or find a place to live years after you have completed your sentence. You will not be treated equally in child custody and parenting time decisions. And you will not be able to own, possess or attempt to purchase a firearm for the rest of your life.

Domestic Violence Charges Can Permanently Limit Your Options

Conviction on domestic violence charges can result in severe penalties and other consequences, including:

  • Jail, fines, probation or mandatory treatment
  • Felony or misdemeanor conviction on your record
  • Loss of security clearance (or military discharge)
  • Forfeiting your right to possess a firearm
  • You won't be treated equally in child custody or parenting time decisions
