Colorado Domestic Violence Lawyer

Criminal Defense Attorney in Steamboat Springs

In the United States, domestic is defined as any pattern of behavior used to gain or maintain control over an intimate partner. The term "intimate partner" refers to housemates, roommates, family members, dating partners, or other close acquaintances. You might think that domestic violence is only committed between husbands and wives. This is false. Domestic violence can occur between individuals in any domestic relationship. People of all races, sexes, and socioeconomic backgrounds are affected by domestic violence.

Types of Domestic Abuse in Colorado

Domestic abuse comes in many forms. The three, most basic forms of domestic violence are:

Emotionally abusive individuals may call victims' names and attempt to insult them incessantly. By continually criticizing, acting possessively, or stalking their victims, emotional abusers tear down the self-esteem of people close to them in an effort to gain control. Emotion abuse may go unnoticed, but is often characterized by specific habits. For instance, an emotionally abusive spouse may not want his/her husband/wife to work. Why? Without an income, the victim is financially dependent on the abuser. This is a form of control.

Physical abuse is less convoluted and easier to identify. Physically abusive individuals may damage victims' property by punching walls, kicking doors and throwing objects. They may bite, kick, slap, or choke their victims or attempt to scare victims by driving dangerously. Physical abusers have been known to trap their victims at home or abandon children (and other victims) in dangerous or unfamiliar places. All of these situations are used to intimidate victims so that their abusers have more power over them.

Sexual abusers may objectify women and follow unrealistically strict gender roles. If a partner constantly accuses his/her significant other of cheating or is jealous of outside family and friend relationships, he/she may be sexually abusive. Partners that demand sex, are physically violent during sex, or attempt to insult their partners in sexually demeaning are considered sexually abusive. Additionally, abusers may be manipulative and controlling.

Have you been accused?

At Feldmann, Nagel & Associates, LLC, our domestic violence lawyers in Colorado understand that domestic abuse is a serious threat to the health and safety of people all over the Unite Sates. We also know that being accused of domestic violence and being convicted are very different. In the heat of an emotional argument, partners may make wild accusations. Hurt feelings, anger, or petty feelings of bitterness could easily drive a spouse, dating partner, child, roommate or other relation to accuse you of a crime. Domestic violence is not a charge on its own. It is an enhanced charge that is given to any violent crime that is between two people in a domestic setting.

This means that you can be charged with domestic violence in regards to assault, harassment, stalking - even homicide. Generally, domestic violence goes hand in hand with spousal abuse or child abuse allegations. At Feldmann Nagel, LLC we want you to remember that all suspects are innocent until proven guilty, and as your attorney, it is our job to protect that innocence If you are facing domestic abuse allegations and don't know where to turn, you've come to right place. At the firm, we are ready to helping people who have been wrongfully accused of crimes. Abuse is never okay – neither are false accusations.
