Any type of conviction can leave you with a criminal record that can seriously affect your employment prospects and other aspects of your life. A criminal record is accessible to potential employers and business partners to review. It can stop you renting property, getting the job you want, obtaining finance, owning a gun, and can also have many other detrimental effects on your lifestyle. Significantly, in separation or divorce proceedings this type of accusation and conviction can be problematic, particularly if child custody or spousal support is to be settled.

One possible measure that you may confront if you are convicted in an assault/family violence matter is an order of protection, orders of this nature are created to protect the victim and give a breathing space free from their abuser. As the person covered by this measure you will be forced to vacate your home if you share it with the abused, return property to them, as well as pay child support and complete other acts mandated by the court. In a misdemeanor crime these orders typically last 60 days and in the case of felony for 90 days. If you have property together or children then matters can be clearly very difficult indeed.
