Domestic Violence

Albuquerque Domestic Violence Attorneys

Need an Albuquerque criminal lawyer for your case?

Domestic violence is not taken lightly by the state of New Mexico. However, domestic violence allegations are some of the most commonly fabricated charges. Domestic violence calls are frequently made because individuals do not realize how serious the consequences of such a call can be, or because an individual has malicious intent such as punishing a spouse. These charges all too often stem from ignorance, spite and defiance.

If you were charged with this offense, why should you speak with a domestic violence defense attorney immediately? Not only can a domestic violence conviction affect your criminal record, it can wreak havoc on your family relationships. Domestic violence charges usually involve assault and battery against one's family member or member of one's household (for example, a roommate or live-in boyfriend).

After an individual is charged with a domestic violence offense, an order of protection is issued. This results in an order of no contact between the defendant and the alleged victim. If you wish to have contact with the alleged victim, your lawyer must file a "Motion for Modification of Conditions of Release." Speak to an Albuquerque criminal defense lawyer at our firm as soon as you can to make sure that you have the defense you need for your charges.

Penalties You Could Incur for Domestic Violence

Domestic violence convictions can result in a host of penalties including:

  • Up to 6 months in jail for a petty misdemeanor
  • Up to one year in jail for a misdemeanor
  • Up to 18 months in prison for a fourth degree felony
  • Up to three years in prison for a third degree felony
  • Probation
  • Monetary fines
  • A mandatory domestic violence/anger management counseling

Thankfully, there are many possible defenses available to you. These include lack of evidence, unreliable witnesses, and false allegations. Domestic violence cases are difficult for prosecutors to litigate because of the relationship between the alleged victim and the defendant. More often than not, a victim may not want to testify.

It is imperative that you speak with a domestic violence defense lawyer today because police frequently only listen to one side of the story and, as a result, it is all too common for an innocent individual to be saddled with a domestic violence charge that could ruin his/her reputation, criminal record, family and future.
