What are the consequences of a domestic violence charge?

Domestic violence is a crime against a person in your family. It doesn’t even have to be your immediate family, but the closer, familial relationship can get you a charge for domestic violence. The really good part is the law does currently still understand that sometimes things can get heated, especially in families, and there are some allowances –we call them “diversion programs” here in Georgia – that allow a first-time offender for domestic violence to essentially get their record restricted and the case dismissed, as long as they follow the diversion program. So, diversion is definitely an option if you’re charged with domestic violence. Diversion is definitely something you wanna look for or ask for when you are charged with a domestic violence offense.


From I-75: Exit at the Highway 120 (South Marietta Parkway) (Exit #263) and follow the signs to KSU Marietta Campus.

You will be headed west and cross over Cobb Parkway (US 41).

Continue until you get to the intersection with Atlanta Street.

At the traffic light turn right onto Atlanta St. (going north).

Atlanta Street will take you straight to the Marietta Square.

Prior to entering the Square, you will see Anderson Street a block before the Square.

Turn Right onto Anderson Street. The Lawyer’s Building will be on your right.
