Spousal abuse allegations are taken extremely seriously by law enforcement officials, and in many cases, a phone call to the police alleging spousal abuse will result in one (or possibly both) individuals involved in the domestic dispute being arrested. Unlike with other criminal charges, spousal abuse charges can be filed against an individual even if the alleged victim eventually takes back the allegations. What’s possibly just as damaging and serious is the fact that spousal abuse allegations can:
Have devastating effects on a person’s reputation and career – even if the individual is ultimately acquitted of the charges (or the charges are eventually dropped by prosecutors)
Result in lifelong penalties, including the loss of parental rights, possibly jail or prison time and/or a criminal record
At Adams Law, our experienced Denver spousal abuse defense lawyers understand that good, law-abiding citizens can easily be wrongfully accused of spousal abuse, and we are dedicated to helping our Clients facing such charges aggressively defend their rights in any necessary legal setting.
Protecting Your Rights – Do Not Face Spousal Abuse Charges Alone
While those charged with spousal abuse will have to defend themselves in court, they may also need to do so in cases opened up by social services or child protective services. In both instances, the accused individual should not try to go up against experienced prosecutors or CPS officials on their own, as even the slightest misstep could result in a conviction or even the loss of parental rights. In fact, some of the penalties associated with a domestic violence and spousal abuse conviction may include (but are not limited to):
Loss of the right to own firearms or obtain a hunting license
Loss of the right to serve in the military or be discharged from the military if currently service
Potential loss of military pensions
Two years of probation for first convictions
Restraining orders or protective orders that may be in place permanently
Loss of the ability to secure public housing or student loans
Loss of the right to be in the U.S. for non-citizens.
