Criminal defense lawyers know that charges of family violence never happen between strangers. These situations always begin between loved ones: family members (cousins, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, kids) or couples (dating, living together, married) have emotional conflicts – arguments or disagreements that might have been resolved in counseling if the police had not been called, and family violence charges, felony or misdemeanor, been filed. Then the private situation becomes part of the permanent public record as criminal activities, along with standard violent assault charges such as:
- Assault and battery
- Aggravated assault
- Domestic assault
- Spousal abuse
- Assault With a Deadly Weapon
- Threats of a Deadly Weapon
- Violent crimes inflicting serious bodily injury involving bar fighting or street fights or gang violence and many kinds of weapons (guns, knives, brass knuckles, bats, explosives, machetes, bayonets, rifles, etc.)
