Domestic Violence Is No Longer Just Domestic Once Police Arrive

In many ways, domestic violence is equivalent to other varieties of assault. However,
deep passions often trigger chains of events that alleged victims did not anticipate.
Outbursts of anger during domestic disputes tend to lead to accusations, returned blows
and threats to call police.


Once law enforcement agents arrive,

a domestic violence or domestic abuse situation is no longer a case between two or more family members or domestic partners. It becomes a case between the state and one or both individuals involved in the family or relationship fight. It is nearly always impossible to tell police at the door, “Never mind. I changed my mind. He/she calmed down and we are working it out.” The police must arrest someone if a report of physical violence or threat of physical harm is made during a domestic dispute. When an arrest is made, a no contact order must be entered. That means you can have no further contact with your loved one until AFTER the criminal case is completed (usually many months later).

To protect yourself and your significant other, obtain a lawyer immediately after an arrest for domestic violence.
