Domestic Violence Representation

Domestic Violence Representation

In Georgia, a domestic violence case does not always involve a married couple. Georgia’s domestic violence laws also apply to domestic partners, parent-child relationships, as well as stepparents and children.

If you have been accused of domestic violence or simple assault, the experienced attorneys at Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. will represent you and protect your rights.

Domestic Violence or Simple Assault

A domestic violence case can carry severe penalties, and an experienced attorney is necessary to ensure that your rights are protected. Often, people accused of domestic violence have never been in trouble with the law. Arguments with loved ones can touch emotions deep within us. Sometimes, people snap, act irrationally and find themselves charged with a crime that can carry stiff penalties. On other occasions, someone may call the police to try to calm a volatile situation without the goal of having someone arrested. However, once the police have been called, the situation is out of your hands, and there is a very good chance someone is going to be arrested.

In any domestic violence case, the nature of the relationship must be examined. If a couple is getting a divorce, or if a couple is in a heated custody battle, these extenuating circumstances must be considered. We understand that people can act irrationally when fighting for their kids or marriages, and we will fight hard to make sure that our clients’ rights are protected.
