Domestic Violence Involving Children Attorney Denver
The Iyer Law Office LLC, Denver Colorado
Domestic Violence Involving Children: Domestic violence is not a crime in and of itself, but rather a classification or label that is attached to any underlying crime when there is or used to be an intimate relationship between the people involved.
For example, a neighbor may hear or witness the sounds of a domestic scuffle and contact the police. When the police arrive at your residence there is a bruise or mark on your spouse’s face, and the police are told that you slapped and shoved your spouse. It is also alleged that these events occurred within view of your children. Based on these facts, the police will most likely charge you with third-degree assault for the slap, harassment for the shove, and child abuse because your child was present for the incident. These three offenses are the underlying offenses to which the label of domestic violence will attach.
If you are charged with Domestic Violence Charges Involving Children (child abuse), you will need an experienced Attorney to defend you.
If I’m accused of domestic violence (child abuse) will I still be able to see my children?
Maybe. Not all domestic violence cases are the same, and while one person may be prohibited from seeing their children it doesn’t mean that all people will be prohibited from seeing their kids.
Generally what happens is that after some time has passed, you will be given visitation rights and gradually earn more time with your kids. However, there are some extreme cases in which a judge may never allow a parent to contact their children again.
