Domestic Violence charges can ruin a person's life. They can impact Fingerprint Clearance Cards, gun rights, and employment. They frequently lead to jail, prison, probation, and counseling. Just having a record of "Domestic Violence" sounds very bad.
There are many defenses to Domestic Violence charges. Many of the defenses deal with who started a particular argument or fight. Often the charges are the result of one party reporting an argument to the police and the police, who are under pressure to arrest someone in these types of calls, simply arresting the party who called and leaving it to the court system to sort out.
