Domestic violence arrests typically happen during periods of overwhelming emotional stress. Often, people are more concerned about the state of a relationship than they are with taking action to defend themselves.
The first thing that comes to mind when most people hear the term 'domestic violence' is smacking, hitting, screaming, and beating. There are many forms of domestic violence that fall under the categories of either physical or verbal abuse. You can be kidnapped, threatened, neglected, or assaulted. Victims of these kinds of violent abuse are usually somebody's spouse, child, or other related family member.
While most domestic violence happens in the home, that isn't true in all cases. If one household member is involved in committing an act of domestic violence on another member of that same household, it can be deemed as being domestic violence.
One of your first actions following an arrest for domestic violence in Marietta or Cobb County should be to contact an experienced attorney. At The Young Law Firm, defense lawyer Diana Whipkey Young has more than 30 years of experience. She is a former Cobb County prosecutor known for getting her clients' the best results possible, whether that means a dismissal, a reduced charge, or going to trial.

If the police were called for a domestic disturbance, you will likely be charged if they see reasonable proof of that disturbance, such as a mark on another person's body. They will then recommend that the alleged victim pursue a temporary protective order (TPO), which could:
If the other party does secure a TPO against you, do not violate that order. No contact means no contact by any means, including phone, mail, e-mail, social media or even passing messages through a relative or other third party. Any contact may be grounds for further criminal charges, such as aggravated stalking, which is a felony.
At The Young Law Firm, we do not want the allegations against you to escalate. Defense lawyer Diana Whipkey Young will conduct a thorough investigation to protect your rights. She is prepared to uncover any weakness in the allegations against you or any evidence that can be used in your favor.
In Georgia, the conditions of bond are often tailored to act in conjunction with a TPO. With effective legal representation, you can negotiate terms that are more favorable to you. This can be very valuable in the freedom it provides, but it can also help you avoid charges like aggravated stalking.
Domestic violence can involve many aspects of criminal law and family law, two areas where domestic violence attorney Diana Young has significant experience. She will carefully listen to your situation and provide an honest assessment of how best to proceed.
Domestic violence cases are very common within the United States. The state of Georgia has enacted much tougher laws to help dissuade this kind of activity. Safe Horizon (largest United States Victims services agency) released some statistics that stated:
In Georgian the problem of domestic violence is addressed in its Domestic Relations Code (Chapter 13). Included in its definition of what is domestic violence, is property damage, unlawful restraint, trespassing, stalking, battery, and assault. Any family member who knowingly and/or violently violates any protective order is in particular trouble. Violating a protective order is charged as a criminal misdemeanor in Georgia. An offender can receive as much a 1 full year in prison along with $1,000 in fees.
