- A prison sentence that could last up to a year, leaving ample time for your spouse or partner to attain full autonomy over your household.
- If you are a military service member, the Lautenberg Amendment (which does not allow you to own weapons after a domestic violence conviction) may single-handedly cause the end of your career.
- The state court charges may only be the beginning. A conviction may be used in a forthcoming divorce or custody proceeding and it could cause you to lose custody of your children.

Facts About Domestic Violence Defense in Hawaii
The State of Hawaii considers domestic violence a full misdemeanor offense, meaning these are criminal accusations that are not as serious as felony charges, but more severe than petty misdemeanors. Your case may likely be decided by a jury, who will look at a number of different factors related to your case, such as:
- Previous instances of domestic abuse
- Witness testimony
- Bruises and other visible damage
- Damage was done to the household
- Previous protective orders
Maximum sentencing for a domestic violence charge will vary based on the seriousness of the charges and whether other offenses have been committed, but they could follow closely with the maximum sentencing of a general full misdemeanor charge, which includes:
- Fines up to $2,000
- Jail time for up to 1 year

FAQ's About Domestic Violence Crimes
What Are My Odds in Court?
The facts of each case are unique and no two cases are the same. What we can say is this, with an average defense attorney, your odds may not be good. However, with an experienced criminal defense lawyer, you stand a significantly better chance of securing a positive outcome. Domestic violence charges are difficult because of how people perceive accused abusers.
You may be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, but that doesn’t mean a jury will give you the benefit of the doubt, especially with a skilled prosecutor demonizing you in front of the men and women that will decide your fate. It often takes a hard-hitting trial lawyer to get the jury to actually listen to your story and believe it in. If you can get them to listen and believe in your theory of defense, you stand a significantly better chance in court.
What Are The Different Types of Domestic Violence?
There are several forms of domestic violence in the State of Hawaii. These include economic abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and physical abuse.
