Responding To Domestic Assault Allegations

Too many people fail to realize that domestic violence cases can be very serious. Even if the alleged victim decides not to pursue the charges, that does not necessarily mean the charges will be dropped. The state may decide to pursue the case. If convicted of domestic violence, you may be sentenced to time in jail. If you violate a civil 50B domestic violence restraining order, you may serve jail time.

Handling Restraining Order Cases Effectively

In North Carolina, domestic violence is something that occurs between people in a relationship or people who formerly had a relationship. It can include threats, stalking, physical violence and sexual violence. Law enforcement takes allegations of domestic abuse very seriously. They may arrest suspects and the prosecutor may pursue charges even if the alleged victims withdraw their allegations.

If a domestic violence protective order/50B has been taken out against you, make sure you understand your rights and the consequences of violating the order. Only you can criminally violate the order.

Protective order violations penalties may include:

  • Jail time
  • Community service
  • A fine
  • Possible immigration status problems

A 50B restraining order can require you to move out of your home, pay temporary spousal and/or child support, and stay away from the alleged victims, their work and school.
