If an officer is called to a house on a domestic disturbance, in almost every case an arrest will be made, even if the alleged victim does not want the arrest made. Simply put, it is immensely easy to be charged with domestic assault.

A conviction for a charge of this nature, like other criminal charges filed in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas, can have long-lasting life impacts. For one, it can deprive you of the right to own a firearm. This can be particularly disastrous for particular jobs like law enforcement, for instance. Additionally, a conviction can result in you not being able to see your children in the case of a divorce/separation. As such, these charges should be fought as aggressively as possible.
