Illinois Domestic Battery Lawyer
Our Kane County domestic violence defense lawyers at Zuelke & Byrd, L.L.C., know how confusing and stressful any domestic violence charge can be. A person accused of domestic battery or a restraining order violation may have been wrongly accused. Often the alleged victim does not want to pursue charges but the prosecutor will not drop the charges. Many people charged with domestic battery have lived a law abiding life and have never abused anyone before, and find themselves charged with domestic violence for a minor incident that would not have been prosecuted a few short years ago. Sometimes the prosecution process can cause more division within the family than the alleged incident that led to the charge.
Our Illinois domestic violence attorneys can thoroughly investigate your case and work hard to win an acquittal or to try to otherwise avoid a permanent criminal conviction. If you have been charged with any type of domestic violence, contact a domestic violence defense attorney at our firm, Zuelke & Byrd, L.L.C., right away. We offer a free initial consultation.

Penalties for Domestic Violence Convictions
Domestic violence crimes can result in anything from a sentence of probation or conditional discharge to time in the county jail or even prison. Under some circumstances a domestic violence offense can be enhanced to a felony charge, depending on the prior criminal history of the accused or the circumstances of the case. A conviction for a domestic violence charge can affect one's ability to obtain or keep an FOID card. A non-citizen convicted of even a very minor domestic battery incident can be deported and never allowed to return to this country.
