Domestic Disputes

An argument between family members can have far reaching consequences. Under Massachusetts law, if the police are called to a domestic dispute, arresting a suspect is the preferred way to deal with the issue. Therefore, it is likely that if the police are called to someone’s house that someone will be arrested.

A conviction for domestic violence can lead to jail time and a host of other consequences. A conviction can prevent one from keeping or obtaining a firearm or lose child custody or visitation rights.
