Glen Burnie Domestic Violence Lawyers
Domestic violence is an assault charge that involves members of the same family, household, or in a romantic relationship. Unless the injury is serious or a dangerous weapon was involved, it is typically considered a misdemeanor. However, if the accused already has prior assault convictions, they may face much harsher penalties for a domestic violence charge.

What Happens After a Domestic Violence Charge?
The victims of most domestic violence cases tend to seek what is called temporary peace, or a protective order against the alleged abuser.
This temporary protective order has the following immediate ramifications:
- You will be ordered to vacate your home
- You will be ordered to stay away from the victim
- You will be ordered to yield temporary custody of your children
This will stay in effect until the hearing, where both parties will tell their story for a judge to carefully review and consider. We can represent you at this crucial hearing and put our experience to work in order to restore peace in your life.
During this period, it is important that you respect the protective order. If you fail to do so, you will most likely be sent to jail or face additional and harsher repercussions. Ward & Co., Chtd. can represent through this time, whether you are facing protective order violation charges or simply domestic violence accusations.
