If you were arrested for domestic assault, you may be worrying what your next steps should be.
The first thing you should do when arrested for domestic abuse or any other crime is to exercise your right to remain silent. You are not required by law to speak to law enforcement officers about the charges until you have a lawyer present. Although you are not required to provide information, you must always remain civil with the police. Finally, when facing such a serious charge, you must contact a domestic assault lawyer as soon as possible.
