Domestic Violence Offences

Charges of violence or threats of violence against a family or household member are taken more seriously than charges of violence against a stranger.

There are different, more severe penalties. There are different procedures in place, including policies that prevent the alleged victim from dropping the case.

These allegations can be susceptible to misunderstandings, and even false or exaggerated claims that can have a drastic impact of families and relationships.

If you are facing charges of domestic assault or any similar charge in Manitoba, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. Whether defending criminal allegation, or addressing emergency protective order hearings you need to know your rights, and be aware of the law.

Know your rights. Know the law. Protect yourself.
