Domestic Assault Charges
Allegations involving domestic assault charges are dealt with in a specialized courtroom equipped with social workers, probation officers and Police Officers. Such charges are so prevalent that Alberta Justice has assembled a specified group of Crown Prosecutors in order to deal with such matters. Charges receiving a “domestic” classification typically involve disputes between boyfriends/girlfriends, husbands and wives. That said, it is not unusual for altercations involving siblings and parents to receive a domestic characterization.
Unlike many criminal charges, domestic assault charges are unique, as the complainant does not always wish to have the file prosecuted. While this is often the case, an accused will none the less be released on conditions which prohibit him/her from attending the matrimonial home, having contact with the complainant, or restricting contact with children of the relationship.
Given the consequences that flow, having counsel with the experience to navigate these waters is of paramount importance. Our counsel appears in Domestic Court daily, maintaining a firm understanding of this court’s unique process. Understanding that there is often a strong prospect for reconciliation, our office looks first at amending the release conditions in order to have our clients return home.
