Frequently Asked Questions about Domestic Violence in Virginia 

Someone has filed a domestic violence complaint against me. Will I go to jail?

It depends. In many instances, when an alleged domestic violence victim files a complaint against an alleged abuser after the fact, it is done to obtain a restraining order against the alleged abuser. The alleged victim of abuse may not proceed to press criminal charges. You may, therefore, not go to jail. However, if they do proceed to press criminal charges, there is a chance that you may face time behind bars.  

It is a good idea to consult with an experienced Virginia domestic violence lawyer when someone files a domestic violence complaint against you. Attorney Drew Page will review your case and determine the best way to approach it in order to protect your right to freedom.
