  • Simple domestic battery is a misdemeanor – intentional physical
    contact or harm, there does not need to be an injury.
  • Felony domestic battery – such as a choking allegation
  • Aggravated domestic battery is a felony – causing serious injury or
    using a deadly weapon, regardless of injury.


Usually, the Court will issue a no contact order, which prohibits any form of communication with the victim, except through your attorney, while domestic battery charges are pending.

Prohibited contact includes direct and indirect contact. This includes communication via phone, text, email, the internet, social media, or through another person.

If there is contact, this is an additional charge, and you will likely go to jail.


If the facts warrant, a judge will issue a temporary injunction that will place restrictions on the person accused of domestic violence. To build your defense it is important to:

  • Photograph your injuries.

  • Keep calls and messages left by the alleged victim.
