Frequently Asked Questions

Can the alleged victim drop the charges?

In Washington, the prosecutor decides whether to pursue charges, not the alleged victim. However, the victim's wishes may be considered.
 

What is a No-Contact Order, and how does it affect me?

A No-Contact Order prohibits you from contacting the alleged victim. Violating this order can result in additional criminal charges.
 

How will a domestic violence conviction affect my rights?

A conviction can impact child custody, firearm rights, employment opportunities, and may result in deportation for non-citizens.
 

What is a Domestic Violence Assessment?

It's an evaluation often required by the court to determine the need for treatment or counseling programs.
 

Can domestic violence charges be expunged from my record?

Under certain circumstances, yes. We can guide you through the process if you're eligible.
