Domestic violence in criminal law can take on many forms. If you’re charged with an assault against a family member or spouse or someone you have a child in common with, it’s automatically going to be labeled a domestic violence offense. In New York state, currently with the new bail reform laws, most of the misdemeanor domestic violence charges, for example, are not eligible for bail. But one type of offense that is, is anything involving domestic violence.

If you’re charged with domestic violence, you will not be eligible for an appearance ticket. You will have to be brought into the precinct and made to see a judge. Depending on the nature of the allegation, there may or may not be a bail eligible offense levied against you.
