Domestic Battery / Domestic Violence Attorney Kane County

Former Kane County Prosecutor

What is a Domestic Battery charge?

A domestic battery is defined as any touching of a family or household member where physical contact causes bodily harm.  A family member or household member includes anyone involved in a relationship such as a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

The penalties for a domestic battery in Illinois can include jail time, a mandatory lifetime criminal conviction, completion of domestic violence counseling, and the permanent loss of gun privileges.

Domestic battery arrests normally occur when the police are called to a domestic dispute. Domestic battery is usually a misdemeanor, but it is a very serious misdemeanor. The immediate impact of a domestic battery arrest is a “no contact” bond that prevents any contact with the person and residence involved.  The “no contact” bond lasts until a judge modifies or removes it. Gun privileges can be forever lost, if  aperson is convicted of domestic battery. A conviction for any domestic violence offense will result in the Illinois State Police revoking a persons FOID privileges as well as any concealed carry permit.
