In Georgia, domestic violence charges are taken very seriously by law enforcement. Domestic violence is defined under Georgia law as any type of violence, force, or coercion against a family member and can also extend to other members who have lived or who are currently living in the household. If a family member or friend has claimed that there is domestic violence in your home, law enforcement may investigate and try to interrogate you in an attempt to admit to any wrongdoing.
Penalties for domestic violence could lead to hundreds of dollars in fines and up to one year in jail, for misdemeanor charges. However, if convicted, a felony of charges can lead to thousands of dollars in fines and anywhere from 18 months to three years in prison.
These are the most common types of domestic violence cases:
• Assault and battery
• Sexual assault
• Child abuse
• Emotional abuse
• Economic abuse
