Civil And Criminal Court Cases

In North Carolina, an allegation of domestic violence may result in both a civil hearing (either a 50B or 50C hearing) and criminal case through an assault or assault on a female charge. Depending on the nature of the act and the victim, the charge could range from simple assault or assault on a female up to more serious felony assault.

It is important to hire skilled and knowledgeable legal representation for both the civil hearing and the related criminal matter to ensure that your rights and freedom are protected. While not a criminal charge, a “no contact” order resulting from a 50B or 50C hearing will show up on any background check, possibly causing many headaches down the road with employment, owning a firearm or obtaining housing.
