A domestic violence conviction can affect your family law case in a number of ways. As soon as you are arrested, it is critical to contact an experienced NYC domestic violence attorney to advocate for your rights.
The conviction can be used against you in family court. This could impact your right to visit your children or your right to partial or joint custody.
The conviction can also affect divorce proceedings. Someone who has been charged with domestic violence may have to pay higher legal fees or alimony to their spouse.
