Domestic Assault Defence in Ontario: What You Need to Know

When disagreements between partners or relatives escalate to violence and become criminal matters, what results is more than just a public airing of your family's proverbial dirty laundry.

The consequences for domestic assault and related offences can be dramatic and wide-ranging. In addition to embarrassment and reputational damage, if you're charged with a family violence crime, you may not even be able to return home or contact the victim until your case is resolved. You could also face fines, jail time, and other penalties upon conviction, including a criminal record that can saddle you with a crushing stigma that limits your opportunities, serve as a barrier to housing and education, and derail your dreams for the future.
