What Happens In The First Few Hours And Days Following An Arrest For Domestic Violence?


Transcript:

Attorney Myles L. Berman explains within the first few hours or days following an arrest for domestic violence, the offender will usually post bail which could be significant. In fact, $50,000 bail is not unusual for a domestic violence charge. If there are alleged threats involved then the bail could be as high as $100,000. Once someone bails out, the first thing they need to do is to contact an attorney who can get involved in their case and protect their rights. Oftentimes, the trauma of being arrested for domestic violence is enormous and could be devastating to the person’s career and family life. In some cases, there will be a protective order prohibiting the alleged offender from having any contact with the alleged victim.

The defense attorney on the case may launch an investigation and interview witnesses or hire a private investigator. Domestic violence cases are highly charged and emotional cases, so separating the parties is usually necessary at least until the situation calms down. Contact Top Gun Criminal Defense Attorney Myles L. Berman serving clients throughout Southern California and he will represent you with the care and attention you expect.
