With domestic abuse cases on the rise due to more people sheltering at home, professional license holders are the most vulnerable to life-long consequences of these convictions. Penalties for a domestic violence charge include suspension and complete revocation of your license. In some circumstances, the lasting effects of this conviction could affect your future career path and livelihood.
Not only will you be subject to judgment by your professional licensing board, but you may also have to deal with hefty fines and penalties. Whether your charge was classified as an accident, self-defense, or even a false accusation, there could be serious consequences to your life and career.
