Domestic Violence Defense Attorney in Medford
One of the most problematic aspects of a domestic violence incident is that the police, by Oregon law, are required to make an arrest when called to respond to a domestic violence disturbance. If one person has injuries or is clearly in distress, an arrest of the accused must be made.
Even if the accusations are false or unfair, and even if the injured party does not want the accused to be arrested, the police will still arrest an accused individual immediately. If the police are investigating allegations of domestic violence in your home, you will need professional legal help from a domestic violence lawyer.
Domestic Violence Offenses
Domestic violence allegations typically stem from extenuating legal matters. It is not uncommon for couples who are in the midst of a divorce to experience heated emotions. In a single moment, even the most patient, kind, or peaceful spouse can snap and act in a physical manner that is out of character. In other cases, spouses who wish to gain the upper hand in a child custody claim may falsify or greatly exaggerate claims of domestic abuse.
In any of these examples, domestic violence cases will always be emotionally charged. Prosecutors in Oregon will not take domestic violence allegations lightly and will try to gather any possible evidence that may cause even the slightest question in your character.
Domestic violence charges can be brought against you in any of the following ways:
- Child, elder, or spousal abuse
- Harassment, sexual or psychological
- Restraining order violation
