Caution: Do Not Try To Defend Your Domestic Partner Yourself

Perhaps you are the spouse or domestic partner who called the police. We urge you not to talk to the police or the State's Attorney about your original claim without consulting an attorney. All too often, well-meaning spouses and partners sign complaints because they believe their family member will get help. The reality is that the criminal justice system is not about getting help for the accused. Speak to an attorney that has your family's interests at heart.
