domestic violence can escalate quickly, due to the legal protections in place for the alleged
victim. Unfortunately, these protections are often abused in an attempt
to harm another person or in an attempt to gain leverage in a family law
case or other legal situations. Very suddenly, you could be facing
criminal charges and a restraining order.
Criminal Records are Public Knowledge
The consequences of this reach far beyond immediate inconveniences or penalties.
An arrest for domestic violence and a subsequent restraining order
will appear on your record even if the charges are dropped. In Nevada, criminal records are public
knowledge and your history will show up in background checks.
These charges will greatly affect the following:
- Employment opportunities
- Housing opportunities
- Your freedoms
Expungement May Be an Option
In order to protect your future, it is worth looking into whether or not
you are eligible to get your record expunged. A protective order might
not be easily expunged from your record and it will take a dedicated defense
attorney to help you evaluate your options and fight for your rights.
