Domestic Assault

These consequences can rob you of years of your life, your income, or your dignity. A lawyer can help you overcome the charges brought against you.

How a Charge of Domestic Assault Can Affect You

Canada's courts take domestic violence charges seriously. As a result, domestic assault convictions can carry long-lasting consequences. Depending on the legal severity of the charge, a domestic assault sentence may result in:

Probation: If you are sentenced to probation, you will be given a list of limitations on your everyday activities. These may include:
  • Little or no contact with your children
  • No contact with your spouse
  • Requirement to support your dependents
  • Counselling
  • Regular meetings with a probation officer
Restitution: Restitution fines will cover the monetary value of your alleged victim's property loss, property damage, and injury costs.
Jail time: If convicted, you may be placed under house arrest or remanded to a prison to serve your jail term.
