Domestic violence is a serious crime in Indiana. When you are charged with domestic violence, you can be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony offense. A misdemeanor battery conviction on your record can limit your future opportunities. A conviction can affect your ability to gain employment, housing, and higher education. In addition, the person accused or convicted of domestic violence can leave a stigma on your name. If you’re charged with domestic violence, contact a domestic violence attorney from Tanzillo Stassin, & Babcock, P.C. in Northwest Indiana. Our experienced Lake County domestic violence attorneys can help you.
