How Prosecutors Work Against Your Case
Minimal evidence is needed in order to place you under arrest for domestic violence.

According to Illinois law, if you are convicted of domestic battery, you could potentially face jail time, fines, restitution, and lose custody of your children. The victim may also take out a restraining order or an order of protection against you, which could potentially affect your ability to get a job or housing.
