An assault against a spouse, a family member or household member, or someone involved in a romantic relationship with you is usually charged as a domestic assault, such as fifth degree domestic assault. It doesn’t take much more than an argument with some physical contact to end up getting charged with misdemeanor domestic assault, and some people get charged with assault even when there was no physical contact. When police respond to a domestic assault call, they routinely make an arrest and then hold that person in jail until they see a judge. Getting released from jail often includes restrictions that prevent the accused person from returning home or having contact with loved ones. In this case, you may also be facing orders for protection, such as a Domestic Abuse No Contact Order (DANCO) or a separate Order for Protection (OFP) in civil court.
