  1. If it is a felony Domestic Violence charge, you automatically get a Jury Trial unless you waive it. If the Domestic Violence charge is a misdemeanor, then you have to file your jury demand no later than ten days prior to the date on which the case is set for trial. Otherwise, you only get a bench trial (trial to judge).

    You should consult your attorney in order to determine the best strategy.
