Significantly, in separation or divorce proceedings this type of accusation and conviction can prove problematic, especially when it comes to child custody or spousal support.

If you are convicted in an assault/family violence matter, you might have to deal with 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, return it to the abused if you shared it with him or her, 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.
