Domestic Violence Cases in New Hampshire
Domestic violence occurs when an individual commits a violent crime against a family or household member, or an intimate partner. As a result, a victim may pursue a protective order in court and, if violated, the defendant may face further penalties, including contempt of court.
Below are some common examples of domestic violence offenses committed against household members, family members, and current or former sexual partners:
- Criminal threatening
- Sexual assault
- Assault or reckless conduct
- Interference with freedom
- Unauthorized entry
- Destruction of property
If a protective order is issued, it may include some of the following provisions:
- You may be prohibited from entering the plaintiff’s residence or the surrounding area
- You may be prohibited from retaining any of the plaintiff’s property stated in the order
- You may be required to give up any deadly weapons you own, including firearms
- You may be denied child visitation or, in some cases, supervised visitation may be ordered
- You may be prohibited from contacting the plaintiff or entering the workplace, school, or other places that are frequented by the plaintiff
A conviction of domestic violence can also result in incarceration. Moreover, having a protective order issued against you may affect your life in numerous other ways, including your ability to own property and find a job, which is why it is crucial to speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
