A Veteran may experience legal consequences when IPV is used.

Below are the most common negative legal consequences for the individual who is using IPV.

  • Legal Involvement – Engaging in IPV can lead to arrest and legal repercussions. With legal involvement, possible outcomes can include but are not limited to serving time and probation.
  • Mandated Classes – Classes mandated by courts could include a batterer intervention program or other court-ordered treatments.
  • Protection Orders Limiting Contact with Others – Protection orders may limit contact not only with your partner but also children.

Are you experiencing any of these relationship concerns?  If so, we understand and we can help!
