Effective Guidance For Family Violence Matters

Domestic violence is a serious charge that carries serious penalties. When you are faced with this situation, the best thing you can do for yourself is call a lawyer immediately.

In Georgia, a domestic violence accusation has serious consequences. You must sit in jail and go before a judge before you can post a bond. This can result in your spending several days in jail. Once you make bond, you may be immediately subject to conditions that remove you from your home and cut off contact with your family.

At Speights Law in Canton, Georgia, our attorneys have the skill and experience to protect you from family violence accusations, including minimizing or removing these conditions. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can start fighting for you.

If you contact us immediately after a domestic violence situation, we may be able to minimize the consequences against you. Don't wait: call 770-383-1450 to get the aggressive defense you need.

What Is Domestic Violence?

Many people already know that domestic violence can occur between two spouses or romantic partners. In most situations, one spouse is accused of physically harming the other.

What few people know, however, is that violence between people who live together — but who are not necessarily spouses or in a romantic relationship — is also considered domestic violence.

Georgia has a wide-reaching domestic violence statute with stiff penalties. It is important to seek help quickly.

Get Help Quickly To Minimize The Consequences

The consequences of a family violence charge — not even a conviction — can be extremely imposing on your life. You may be under bond conditions that limit your access to your home and children before you ever go to trial. These conditions can also affect your job.

For these reasons, it is best to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. If you contact us soon enough, we may be able to minimize the immediate consequences of a domestic abuse accusation.

However, if an order has already been issued against you prohibiting you from contacting your family, hope is not lost. We can aggressively pursue modifications to the order that could alleviate some of the restrictions on your life.

We have helped numerous people through serious domestic violence situations, and we can prepare a strong defense for you, too.
