An example of a domestic violence battery is strangulation. Strangulation domestic violence charges are a third-degree felony and can be extremely serious. On top of the fines and possible incarceration, there is a good probability that strangulation or domestic violence charges could result in a restraining, or no-contact, order. This could mean that you would lose your right to see your family. A domestic-related conviction of strangulation may be deportable if you are not a United States citizen, and it may include incarceration and becoming a convicted felon. Further, this type of legal trouble could cause you terrible embarrassment in the community, destroy your reputation and hinder your career. With the possibility of an online Florida domestic violence database, which would be retroactive if implemented, it is especially important to avoid conviction of domestic violence.
