What kind of attorney does my fiance need to help him with a family violence battery charge and a no contact order dropped?
2 attorney answers
He needs a Criminal Defense Attorney, who can then file a motion with the court to be heard on the contact order issue, or speak to the prosecutor and their victim witness department to determine if amending the order to no further violent contact is appropriate
Criminal defense attorney. Note, however, I have heard of the victim(s) being charged with falsely reporting a crime when they tried to drop the charges against the person arrested. Either you were in distress and he needed to be arrested or he didn’t. If he didn’t do anything, why did you report the crime? Makes sense, right? I urge you to use caution here.
