In Illinois, a domestic battery charge is an offense that can harm you in many ways beyond the charge itself.

How you deal with a felony or misdemeanor domestic violence arrest, or charges of child abuse, can impact you in criminal court, civil court, and family court. It can affect family relationships for years to come. Make sure you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer who will listen to you and help you limit the consequences of your arrest.

Domestic Battery in Illinois

Domestic battery is defined as the unlawful touching or harming of a member of the family, a member of your household, a person you are dating, or a person you have a domestic relationship with (the other parent of your child, for example).

Can you fight the charges? Yes. Tell your domestic battery lawyer exactly what happened. What occurred, when, and how? How did the arrest happen? The resolution of this case may have lasting repercussions.

  • You could be convicted and placed on probation or face another type of sentence, such as conditional discharge.
  • Your arrest could affect parental responsibility or parenting time rights. It could also affect your rights and obligations in a divorce case.
  • You may also need to defend a civil Order of Protection against you.
  • Depending on circumstances, a domestic violence arrest may result in a lesser charge which is expungable.
