Why Can’t I go Home After I Have Been Arrested for Domestic Battery?

domestic_violenceIf you or a loved one has been arrested for a domestic battery or even a simple battery against someone who lives in your home with you, you are not allowed to return to the home. After being arrested for battery, you are taken to jail without a bond and have to wait to the see the judge the next morning. The Judge is required by law to give you a monetary bond (which means no supervised pre-trial released) and one of the conditions of your bonds will be that you are not allowed to return to your home where the victim lives. This condition will apply even if you own the home and the victim does not. You will not be allowed back unless the judge signs an order allowing you back to the home.

This is very confusing and in some cases very unfair, which causes an extreme hardship on you and the entire family. This why it is extremely important that you or your loved one, that is caught up in this predicament, hire an experienced criminal attorney that knows how to handle domestic battery and battery cases. If you violate the Judge’s order, the Judge will revoke your bond and you will be rearrested and stay in jail without a bond until the case is completely done.

Your attorney will need to work quickly to either get a stipulation signed by the prosecutor or set a hearing in front of the Judge as soon as possible so that you may return to you home. This is important so you have an experienced attorney who works with the prosecutors and judges on a daily biases. The attorneys at the Law Office of Eric Reisinger are the experienced attorney’s you need to help you navigate the process and get you back home.
