Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after a domestic violence arrest?

After an arrest for domestic violence, police will gather all the necessary details regarding the scene. Witness statements will be recorded, and criminal background checks will be run. If the police arrest you, you will want to contact a Virginia Beach domestic violence attorney as soon as you are able. The next step would be an arraignment hearing. During this time, you will be formally advised of any charges against you and you will be asked to enter a plea to charges.

What if my spouse wants to drop the charges?

Law enforcement will interview your spouse regarding the incident to determine why they have changed their mind. Your spouse will likely also meet with domestic violence advocates who will encourage them to pursue the case.

What is a No Contact Order?

One condition of bond release is for the judge to issue a no contact order. A no-contact order requires the defendant to have no contact with the victim for a specified amount of time. If the defendant breaks the no contact order, they could be charged with an addition crime, or have their bond release revoked and have to return to jail.
