Domestic Violence Laws in Farmington Hills

Domestic violence goes beyond intimate partner relationships—it encompasses diverse interpersonal connections within a household. This includes individuals who commit assault or battery against a spouse or former spouse, a current or former dating partner, someone with whom they share a child, or any person residing or previously residing in the same household. It’s crucial to recognize that domestic violence can happen among family members, household occupants, or individuals in dating relationships, irrespective of marital status or gender. This broader comprehension underscores the intricacy of domestic violence cases and emphasizes the importance of addressing the issue comprehensively within the legal system.

Domestic Violence Penalties in Farmington Hills

Typically, a first domestic violence offense is categorized as a misdemeanor, although certain circumstances may justify more severe charges. Initially, individuals may encounter a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail and a fine of $500. Subsequent offenses can lead to elevated charges, potentially resulting in up to one year of incarceration and a $1000 fine. Repeat offenses may incur penalties of up to five years of imprisonment and a $5000 fine. Additionally, a domestic violence charge can affect one’s right to possess firearms and limit employment opportunities. At The Law Office of Julian J. Poota, we understand the delicacy required in handling such cases, often involving close relationships. Drawing upon our extensive experience, we endeavor to achieve the best possible outcome for individuals confronting these challenging charges.
