Defending Domestic Violence Charges In Asheville, Waynesville And Sylva
Many people improperly assume that an individual can only face charges for domestic violence if the altercation occurred between two spouses or partners.
But this is a misnomer. A domestic violence charge can be filed if an altercation occurred between two individuals in a “personal relationship.”
Personal relationships can include:
- Two current or former spouses
- Cohabiting partners
- Parents or guardians and children
- Two current household members
