A person charged with any form of spousal abuse will need competent representation from a Jacksonville criminal defense lawyer.

Associates at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. can answer your questions regarding spousal abuse and help you understand the laws pertaining to your case. We will give you sound legal advice and can be counted on for strong representation in court.

Jacksonville Attorney for Domestic Violence Cases

Spousal abuse is a serious crime that can have many consequences.

Penalties for a conviction can include:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Mandatory counseling
  • Community service
  • Injunction for Protection

If the case involved sexual misconduct, sentencing can also include sex offender registration, which can affect future job opportunities. If an Injunction for protection is issued, it will prevent a person from having any further contact with their spouse and may even prohibit them from visiting their children. If the children witnessed the violence, the abuser can also face additional charges of child endangerment. In abuse cases involving an ex-spouse, the court may choose to terminate the abuser's custody and visitation rights.
