Do I Need a Lawyer if Charged With Domestic Violence Offences

Short answer is "yes, you do need a lawyer if you are charged with domestic violence offences." Although the discourse on violence is quite gendered these days, and violence occurs in all gender parings, overwhelmingly, the violence that makes the media is male perpetrator and female victim.

Convictions involving domestic violence are now labelled as such on your criminal history. If you are going through family law, a conviction for violence or a breach of an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order could work against you.

When dealing with allegations of violence you may be faced with false allegations or be dealing with an incident that occurred by accident or in the heat of the moment.

It can be a tragic situation and requires sound and sensitive legal advice and representation from criminal lawyers Parramatta.
