Domestic Violence & Family Law
Compassionate Support From a Longmont Family Law Lawyer
A charge of domestic violence has serious consequences and, as a result,
it is important to have an experienced legal team on your side to help
understand the charge and defend your rights.
Domestic violence is defined as more than just physical violence between
spouses. In Colorado, domestic violence can include a threat of violence,
stalking, harassment, or another crime if the crime was used to coerce,
control, punish, intimidate, or seek revenge against someone with whom
the accused is, or has been, involved in an intimate relationship.
An intimate relationship is a relationship between:
- Former spouses
- Past or present unmarried couples
- Persons who are both the parents of the same child

When Can an Arrest Take Place?
Colorado law states that when an officer has probable cause to belief an
act of domestic violence occurred, the officer must arrest the suspect.
Once arrested for domestic violence, a restraining order is entered-meaning
you cannot have contact with the victim, and possibly not with your children,
for a court-ordered period of time.
