In Kansas, the DV domestic violence laws are aggressive and can be complicated. Domestic violence can be between spouses, children, parents – even ex-roommates. If an accuser tells the police and tells them you have so much as laid a hand on them, chances are good you will be spending the night in jail. An accuser may even sue you.
Domestic violence can be a felony or misdemeanor, depending on how serious the charges are. Being convicted of domestic violence could mean you’ll be facing jail time, heavy fines or other punishments. It might even mean you’ll lose your right to vote or possess firearms.
