Cases of alleged spousal assault involve some particular challenges and sensitivities. The inherent stress of conflict is often compounded by quick decisions to arrest and charge.
However, it is possible to ultimately resolve many of these cases in a satisfactory manner with the assistance of counsel. In the mean time, care should be taken to avoid complicating the situation by any breach of contact restrictions.
For all criminal investigations or charges, it is wise to consult counsel immediately and to avoid making statements to others at least until that is done.
