North Carolina Attorneys Fighting Domestic Violence Accusations
In some instances, an individual will accuse a partner or family member of domestic violence as a means to get back at him or her. Domestic violence charges are very serious and can remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life. If you are accused of domestic violence, you could have a restraining order placed against you without ever having a chance to be heard. That's why it's so important that you protect your rights by contacting a Lexington restraining order lawyer right away.
In North Carolina, domestic violence is defined as a threat or act of aggression toward a child or adult with whom you have a personal relationship. This could include a spouse, child, current or former girlfriend/boyfriend, or another member of the family. In most cases, the victim and the alleged aggressor live together.
