The state of Arizona takes domestic violence charges very seriously, and has recently passed legislature strengthening domestic violence laws and penalties. As a result, in many cases prosecutors can and will vehemently pursue cases against alleged perpetrators, even in cases where the victim refuses to prosecute.

The penalties for domestic violence can vary depending on the circumstances involved. According to ARS § 13-3601, domestic violence can occur against spouses, romantic partners, children, and any other person living with the accused.

Any one of these crimes can be considered as domestic violence:

If you were arrested on domestic violence charges that claim you allegedly committed any of these crimes as well, you could face the penalties for that specific crime. That is why it is imperative that you call Sonoran Law Group to speak with our expert criminal defense attorney Ryan M. Garvey to learn about your options for defense.

A Domestic Violence conviction carries the same punishment as the Assault charge, but the real additional punishment attached to a Domestic Violence conviction is the fact that it can be used against the defendant in the future in a Child Custody/ Divorce proceeding. A Domestic Violence conviction could cost a person their rights to have visitation with their children or in some cases to lose custody. In addition, during background checks, most potential employers will not hire someone with an Assault or Domestic Violence conviction on their record. It goes without saying; a second or subsequent conviction for Assault or Domestic Violence Assault carries very serious ramifications.

At Sonoran Law Group, attorney Ryan M. Garvey is familiar with domestic violence laws in Arizona, and urges you to seek knowledgeable counsel and not attempt to handle domestic violence charges on your own. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney who will take a proactive approach and aggressively defend your case.
