Many people who have never before been involved with the criminal justice system suddenly find themselves charged with a domestic assault or threatening, and risking a criminal record and other serious consequences. Their world is turned upside down because bail conditions typically require them to have no contact with their husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend.

And the bail order normally requires them to stay away from their own home.

It often makes it difficult to see their own children.

A recognizance or undertaking with bail conditions is an extremely serious court order, and a conviction for breaching a bail condition typically results in a jail sentence.

It is extremely important to be represented by a strong, knowledgable, and experienced lawyer on domestic charges as early as possible since domestic charges can have far reaching consequences on so many aspects of a person’s life.
