What is the legal standard for domestic violence?

Conviction on domestic violence-related charges will have a dramatic impact on a person's personal and professional life. Understanding the law as to when a case is classified as domestic violence is an integral part of formulating a defense.

There can be a domestic violence arrest if the incident occurs between the victim and the defendant if they are married or are living or have lived in the same location. It can also be made if the couple shares a child or if one is pregnant by the other. It is not just a spousal or intimate relationship that can result in these charges if there are domestic violence allegations. If the parties are simply related by blood or court order in any way, there can be a charge of domestic violence.

If the victim is a child who lives in or has lived in the same residence as the person who was arrested and is a blood relation to the defendant's prior spouse or to someone who lives in the home or has lived in the home with the defendant, it can be a domestic violence case. If the relationship is or was romantic or sexual, the following must be considered when a domestic violence complaint is made: what type of relationship they had; how long the relationship lasted; how often the parties interact; and if the relationship ended and how long it has been since its end.

Oftentimes, ordinarily law-abiding people find themselves in the justice system because of domestic violence allegations. It is important to formulate a defense after a domestic violence arrest in Arizona.
