Domestic Violence Lawyer Salt Lake City UT
When individuals are accused and/or formally charged with domestic violence offenses, they are often subjected to orders of protection that limit the ways in which they can communicate with their alleged victims and other vulnerable parties. It is critically important, if you have been accused of and/or formally charged with domestic abuse, that you honor the terms of any such orders. And it is also critically important that even if no formal order of protection is in place, you communicate with great care when connecting with anyone related to your case. Should you ever have any questions or concerns about your communications while your case remains pending, don’t guess. As the experienced legal team at Rasmussen & Miner for guidance. Failure to do so could compromise the strength of your defense and could lead to severe consequences.
Domestic Violence Lawyer – Salt Lake City, UT
As our Salt Lake City, UT domestic violence lawyer team can confirm, violating an order of protection by communicating in prohibited ways can land you in jail. And even if you are not violating an order of protection, communicating with others connected to your case in ill-advised ways can damage your criminal defense. If you have children, improper or ill-advised communication could even threaten your ability to maintain your custody rights. Tread extremely carefully when engaging in in-person, electronic, and other forms of communication while your case remains open. And when in doubt about whether to communicate in a certain way—ask us for legal guidance and perspective.
Communicating with Great Care While Your Case Remains Unresolved
Communicating with care while your case remains pending does not just involve in-person conversations and telephone calls. This approach extends to texts, email, social media engagement, and even third-party communication. Did you know that you could be considered in violation of an order of protection if you ask a friend or loved one to communicate with the protected party on your behalf? Did you know that opposing counsel could enter your social media activity, texts, emails, and other forms of electronic communication as evidence against you? Do not take chances. If you need to communicate with others involved in your case for any reason, discuss the proper ways to go about initiating this communication with our firm first.
