St. George Domestic Violence Lawyer

The Utah Department of Human Services defines domestic violence as “any criminal offense involving violence or physical harm when committed by one cohabitant against another.”

These types of charges can be extremely complex and have serious life impacts. The fact is, in the vast majority of cases, when an officer is called on a domestic disturbance, someone is getting arrested — even if it is against a victim’s wishes. A conviction means the loss of rights to own or possess a firearm, which is detrimental for anyone who must carry a firearm by vocation. It also may have an impact on your ability to re-enter your house and see children and may be catastrophic to a career.

These types of criminal charges don’t just apply to husbands, wives, boyfriends, and girlfriends. In any domestic violence situation, a roommate, friend or co-worker can be charged. In fact, anyone who has lived in the same home as you, no matter if it was your choice or not is a co-habitant. Because of the ease with which a charge can be brought and the severity of a conviction, it goes without saying that partnering with a lawyer is a must.
