Family Violence Act (FVA)

When a person is charged with certain crimes against a spouse, former spouse, person who they have children with, or who have ever lived together, they can be charged under the “Family Violence Act.” The Family Violence Act, or “FVA,” carries with it certain extra penalties that will follow a person for the rest of their lives. Even convicted felons can have their rights restored, but a conviction under the Family Violence Act can never be removed.

If you have been charged under the Family Violence Act don’t wait to contact an attorney. In SOME cases, charges can be reduced or dismissed to avoid the severe consequences of the Family Violence Act.
