Want to avoid a criminal record arising from Domestic Assault Charges?
Assault laws in Alberta have no specific criminal code dedicated to charges of domestic assault and battery. Some incidents involving domestic violence are referred to as spousal assaults. Domestic violence assault cases are often charged as existing assault charges such as simple assault or assault causing bodily harm. Very often, these domestic assault battery incidents involved a “he said/she said” altercation. The alleged “domestic assault victim” and the accused often disagree about the facts that contributed to the incident. The lawyers at Law Offices of Gunn Law Group have helped many of our clients, in the area of spousal assault, avoid a criminal record by negotiating with the Crown to drop the assault charge if the client agrees to a type of restraining order called a 810 peace bond, also known as a “recognizance”, in regards to the “domestic assault victim”.
On the other hand, when people are accused of domestic assault, they often have to deal with an Emergency Protection Order issued against them by the complainant. Emergency Protection Orders are often referred to as “EPO’s.” Our domestic assault defence team can help get an Emergency Protection Order lifted.
