Facing Aggravated Assault Charges In Alberta?
In Alberta, assault laws have no specific criminal code dedicated to domestic violence assault charges and the majority of incidents involving domestic violence are often referred to as spousal assaults. Domestic violence assault cases are charged as assault charges like simple assault or assault causing bodily harm. Often, domestic assault battery incidents involve a disagreement between the participants. The alleged “domestic assault victim” and the accused often disagree on the facts that affected the incident. In the area of spousal assault, the lawyers at Slaferek Callihoo have helped the majority of our clients avoid a criminal record by negotiating with the Crown to drop the assault charge in return for an agreement to a type of restraining order called a 810 peace bond, also known as a “recognizance.”
On the other hand, when people are accused of domestic assault, they often have to deal with an Emergency Protection Order issued against them by the complainant. Emergency Protection Orders are often referred to as “EPO’s.” Our domestic assault defence team can help get an Emergency Protection Order lifted.
