Flagstaff Domestic Violence Lawyer

The Arizona State Legislature, acknowledging the seriousness of domestic violence, has passed many laws increasing the penalties for these charges. In addition to the possibility of fines, probation and even jail, a domestic violence conviction will bring on two unique penalties. Anyone accused of domestic violence will have to attend and pass a court-ordered domestic violence course. These classes are typically 26 weeks in length. Of perhaps greater importance, you may lose your right to bear arms upon a domestic violence conviction. This can have a dramatic impact on hunters, law enforcement officers and anyone who wants to exercise his or her constitutional rights.

In addition, if you are in the middle of a divorce or custody dispute, you will be presumed to be an unfit parent upon a conviction of domestic violence. This could make it difficult, if not impossible for you to maintain a favorable custody arrangement with your children.
