Domestic Violence is also referred to as spousal abuse, wife abuse, husband abuse, child abuse or elder abuse, is when a person willfully inflicts bodily injury that results in a traumatic condition, upon another person with whom they are cohabitating. It is a common misconception that if the alleged victim in a domestic violence case asks that the charges be dropped, the case will be dismissed. When the police arrive at a domestic violence call, it is no longer up to the parties whether there will be an arrest. Once the prosecutor has made a decision to file charges after an arrest for domestic violence or spousal abuse, there are lots of conditions of probation that can bring your life to ruins.
