Spousal Battery

Any criminal charges have the potential to complicate your life for years to come. Spousal battery, spousal abuse or other domestic violence charges often hit home in very personal ways. If these charges stick, you may be blocked from entering your own home or spending time alone with your children. Particularly if you are in the process of a divorce or you see your children on a partial custody or visitation basis, your access to your children may be at risk after an arrest on charges of battering your wife, husband or partner.

The statute specifies potential penalties and consequences of a conviction, namely:

  • A fine up to $2,000
  • Imprisonment up to one year
  • Both a fine and jail time
  • Probation together with a batterer’s treatment program or appropriate counseling
