In Arizona, Domestic violence is not a crime in and of itself. Instead, it is a label for various types of offenses occurring within domestic relationships. Because of the personal nature of these crimes within intimate and family relationships, courts take these allegations very seriously to protect victims. Thus, accusations of a domestic nature can drastically impact your life. When called to the scene of a domestic disturbance, police officers commonly face situations where no independent witnesses exist. Evidence may be scant or non-existent. All that is available are the statements made by accusers that cannot be verified. In many circumstances, police officers are required to make an arrest. These offenses often lead to wrongful accusations and charges based on false statements, half-truths, and exaggerations. At times, individual’s going through a divorce, custody dispute, or other family law matter will use domestic violence allegations to gain the upper hand in the family matter or even to punish the other party.

At Alatorre Law, we are well-versed in the many scenarios that can lead to domestic violence charges. Our firm is also highly familiar with Arizona domestic violence laws, how courts view these matters, and what is needed to ensure that your side of the story is heard and your rights are protected. With this knowledge, we help you fight back against these charges so that we can protect your reputation and your future.

A conviction for domestic violence will label you as a violent offender, even when no violence has even occurred, and the resulting penalties can be severe.

Domestic Violence Offenses In Arizona

In Arizona, any criminal offense can also be a domestic violence offense. The only requirement is that the victim of the offense be a person with whom the accused has a domestic relationship, such as:

▪ Current and former spouses and intimate partners
▪ Children and household members
▪ Those related by blood or marriage

Examples of crimes that can be labeled domestic violence offenses can include but are not limited to:

▪ Sexual assault
▪ Assault and aggravated assault
▪ Unlawful restraint
▪ Trespassing
▪ Criminal damage
▪ Disorderly conduct
▪ Threatening/intimidation
▪ Preventing phone calls in an emergency
▪ Dangerous crimes against children
▪ Stalking
▪ Harassment

Domestic Violence Offense Penalties

How you are charged will depend on the circumstances; charges can range from misdemeanors to felonies. The potential penalties can include jail or prison time, harsh fines, years of domestic violence probation, mandatory counseling or participation in domestic violence counseling, community service hours, and loss of gun ownership rights. Furthermore, a conviction will lead to a permanent criminal record that can destroy your reputation and diminish your ability to gain future employment, professional licenses, and more. You may also be subject to a restraining order that removes you from a shared residence, bars you from any contact with the alleged victim, and can affect your custody rights to your children.

Because of the harsh consequences associated with any domestic violence offense, you need an aggressive legal team on your side. At Alatorre Law, we provide vigorous representation through hard work and attention to detail. Our legal strategies are designed to give you the best possible outcome.

I was accused/cited for DUI so I hired Javier Alatorre to defend me (I was under the legal BAC limit). When I first spoke to Javier, he treated me like a person and never made me like a criminal so I felt very comfortable with him. He was always available to discuss this case even though it dragged on for over 3 years (COVID). The end result was that he got my cased dismissed. I couldn't ask for anything better. I highly recommend Javier.

Attorney Javier Alatorre is very attentive, personable, and responds timely to inquiries. His confidence and knowledge of the judicial process is commendable and very reassuring. His understanding of a client's concerns and worries is notable and very much appreciated. My case is ongoing, but thus far, attorney Alatorre has proven to be very responsible, available, and invested in serving his clients.

Even though my case was in Bull Head City. I am more than glad I got with Javier. Im the type of person that don’t trust anyone. Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. Thats my motto. After a week of talking to every lawyer through out AZ I liked Javier the best. And was extremely glad I trusted my instincts. I love to gamble but not with my life. Trust me. Just call him

Javier helped me out not once, but twice in an exceptional manner. Javier was always on time and one step ahead of the process. He was also extremely courteous to the courtroom employees and could navigate around situations at ease. Not to mention he had pin point precision in examining details in both cases. Both outcomes in the two cases I had him for were more than advantageous. I highly recommend Javier for your next case!

I highly recommend Javier Alatorre. He is very professional and exceeded all my expectations. Not only is he very knowledgeable, he takes the time and has the ability to explain all aspects of the case in simple terms.Javier draws on his own extensive experience as well as on his wide professional network to provide the best counsel across different specialties. In my case the immigration implications were important and he helped me understand the possible outcomes and decide on the best course to achieve the desired result.If you want results, you want Javier Alatorre on your team.
