YOU NEED TO HIRE A COMPETENT CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY IN YOUR AREA ASAP!. You need to stay away from this girl/woman. Document your past encounters with this person and bring the info to your attorney to defend you. A felony charge is one thing, but loss of freedom is another. Get counsel.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
I could not agree more that you need to speak with an attorney! Do not make any statements to anyone, until you have retained an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney ask the court to appoint you a public defender or an ADC attorney.
Domestic cases can be tough. They typically are he said-she said. Because of that, you need a lawyer, an advocate for your side in court. Please look for a local criminal defense attorney to fight for you. If you cannot find one, i can refer you to someone i know who practices in the Denver area. Good luck.

Your concern is valid, You need to contact an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney right away. These are very serious charges and they could land you in jail. The courts take claims of domestic violence very seriously and they can really hammer somebody who does not know what they are doing. Don't try to save money by representing yourself.
For now, you probably have a restraining order against you so you can have no contact with the alleged victim or the children. Don't ignore that order. Even if the victim tries to contact you, don't respond. You cannot take that risk.

These type of domestic violence cases are always difficult because it often boils down to the complainants word vs. the defendant's word. In other words, since often there are no witnesses to the incident (or no unbiased witnesses) the credibility of the complainant is often the determining factor. Undermining the credibility of the complainant will be paramount in your case. Therefore, it is important to retain the services of an experienced attorney in order to accomplish that objective.
Remember that you have a Constitutional Right to remain silent. This means you cannot be compelled to speak with anyone, including the police. You should seek out the advice of an experienced CRIMINAL DEFENSE lawyer, most offer free initial consultations. If you are unable to pay for a lawyer, the Colorado Public Defender will represent you. The Colorado Public Defender's Office are some of the best out there. Good luck!
