What Is Domestic Violence in Portsmouth?

New Hampshire defines domestic abuse as the commission or attempted commission of acts by a family or household member, or a current or former sexual or intimate partner. Family or household members include current or former spouses, persons who currently or formerly lived together, parents, and persons related by blood or marriage other than minor children who live with the defendant. Essentially, there must be an intimate component between the victim and perpetrator.

Domestic violence acts include:

  • Assault or reckless conduct
  • Criminal threats
  • Sexual assault
  • Interference with freedom
  • Destruction of property
  • Unauthorized entry
  • Harassment
  • Cruelty to animals

What are the Penalties of a Domestic Violence Charge?

Domestic violence can be penalized as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the severity and number of occurrences. Misdemeanors are considered as less serious than felonies, but both charges involve lengthy jail sentences, hefty fines and tough community supervision. Our attorney believes that felony and misdemeanor charges are similar in that their impacts on your reputation and livelihood are equally detrimental. As such, he will work tirelessly to achieve a positive result on your behalf.
