When it comes to criminal charges that hold lots of emotional weight, nothing quite tops the list like domestic violence allegations. Whether you are accused of domestic violence, or you have suffered what you believe to be domestic violence, it's a tough situation. A person's health and wellness is number one, so prioritizing this during this time is important. Domestic violence allegations can have lasting impacts on all involved, though, which is why individuals involved in these alleged incidences need to do everything they can to protect themselves.
Alleged victims of domestic violence can seek a protective order, which can limit or eliminate contact with the alleged perpetrator while the criminal process progresses. Those who have been served a protective order need to understand the limitations imposed on them so that they don't violate the order. Failure to do so could make it much more difficult on the accuser later in the criminal proceedings and could call for further consequences.
