Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is one of the few areas of criminal law where individuals are charged merely upon the word of one person without any corroborating evidence. Often, the person who files the complaint of domestic violence is given the benefit of the doubt by police officers, prosecutors, and judges. Citations are given, people are removed from households, charges are filed and restraining orders issued with merely the statement of a victim. More often than not, situations called domestic violence are simply disputes between caring people going through hard times. Even something as simple as yelling can be called Disorderly Conduct and an individual can be charged with a crime of domestic violence.

Victims of domestic violence are rightfully accorded lofty rights and protections, but that often leaves the spouse or significant another feeling even more helpless to defend themselves. Domestic violence offenses have some of the most costly and long-lasting consequences of any crime in Arizona.

Legal Overview of Arizona Domestic Violence

Legally, domestic violence is not confined to acts against a spouse. In Arizona, domestic violence laws apply to spouses, unmarried partners, former spouses and partners, people who are dating, the elderly and children of those individuals.

Domestic Violence is taken very seriously by the Arizona state legislature, the courts and state and local law enforcement agencies. New and existing laws are enforced zealously, and prosecution for domestic violence no longer depends on the alleged victim pressing charges.

Likewise, the consequences of conviction on a charge of domestic violence can be serious. Regardless of whether the charge is a felony or misdemeanor, the conviction may result in jail time and the loss of your right to own a gun. A felony conviction will also result in the loss of your right to vote.
