Domestic Violence Charges In Oklahoma: What You Might Be Up Against
Representing individuals in Norman, Oklahoma City, Pauls Valley, El Reno, and all throughout the entire state of Oklahoma.
Once The Police Are Notified, An Arrest Is Almost Always Made—Regardless Of The Circumstances
There is a common scenario in these cases: Two people in a domestic relationship — often a married couple or a dating couple — get into a dispute. The police are called, either by a neighbor or by one of the people involved hoping that the police will just help sort the matter out.
However, when police come to a domestic violence call, they typically make an arrest. The alleged victim cannot just drop the charges.
The prosecutor can and often will choose to pursue charges regardless of what the alleged victim wishes. This is not a situation you can sort out by yourself.
Victim’s Protective Orders (VPO’s)
In addition to being charged with domestic violence, you may be the target of a restraining order or victim’s protection order (VPO). This order may prevent you from returning to your home, seeing your children or possessing a firearm.
