DOMESTIC ASSAULT LAWYER
Hire the absolute Best Domestic Assault Lawyer
Domestic charges involve charges that occur between individuals in a relationship. Most commonly they involve charges of assault, however, will often consist of charges of mischief, uttering threats and criminal harassment. The Crown Policy Manual, which dictates Crown policy in prosecuting offences of this type, instructs the Crown to pursue these charges “with vigour”.
Retain an Experienced Domestic Assault Lawyer
In all but rare cases, when an individual is charged with a domestic offence, they are held in custody and brought to court for a bail hearing (in some circumstances, when offences are of a very minor nature, release from the police station can be obtained, but this is very uncommon).
In order for an individual to be released on bail for domestic offences they will almost always require a residential surety, which means that someone they know (who lacks a criminal record and has some form of income or assets) will be required to sign their bail, and that they will be required to live with that person.
Except in the rarest of circumstances, the individual charged will be placed on conditions that require them to have no contact with the complainant and to not attend at any place they know the complainant to be. In practice, this can mean that the individual charged will not be able to have any contact with their partner or attend at their shared home until the charges are dealt with. As such, it is imperative that domestic assault, domestic violence, or any other abuse charges be dealt with as quickly as possible with a diligent Brampton domestic assault lawyer while still ensuring a positive outcome.
