Domestic violence is a serious charge that can carry consequences long after your case has been concluded. Today most employers run background checks before hiring anyone. A single charge can often prevent someone from obtaining a job.
In addition, the State of South Carolina now has a special prosecutor who handles nothing but criminal domestic violence cases. Due to the possible danger of domestic violence calls, police will often make an arrest even if there are no signs of domestic violence. It is important to not allow the charge to stay on your record. Additionally, being convicted of domestic violence can carry, in some cases, serious jail time, fines and required programs to be completed upon release. You may also lose custody of your children, or even be denied the right to come in contact with them.
