The Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction

Some consequences in criminal court are all too familiar. Things like fines and time spent in jail are easy to understand, if hard to bear. Other consequences may depend on your situation. A domestic violence conviction can cost you your job or your entire career.

Any profession that requires a license could potentially use a DV conviction to take that license away. Teachers, nurses, school counselors and others should consider whether a domestic violence conviction is something they can risk.

Like many criminal charges, domestic violence accusations can also put your right to own a gun at risk. Whether you want to own a gun for self-defense or to go hunting with your friends or family, you can lose this right if you are convicted.

Domestic violence convictions can also threaten your rights under immigration law. Convictions carry stiff consequences for people seeking a green card or working in the U.S. under a visa. If you get a domestic violence conviction, you could face removal (deportation).

Finally, domestic violence can carry harsh consequences in the realm of family law. It’s not uncommon for these allegations to come during or just before divorce or child custody battles. If you’re convicted on a domestic violence charge, you won’t be eligible for sole managing conservatorship (sole custody), or primary conservatorship (primary custody) of your kids. You can easily find yourself frozen out of your children’s lives if your case goes badly.
