In Arizona, domestic violence is not confined to acts against a spouse. Domestic Violence Laws apply to spouses, unmarried partners, former spouses, roommates, people who are dating, and to the elderly. Domestic Violence is taken very seriously by the Arizona state legislature, the courts and state and local law enforcement agencies. New and existing laws are enforced zealously, and prosecution for domestic violence no longer depends on the alleged victim pressing charges.
Likewise, the consequences of conviction on a charge of domestic violence can be serious. Regardless of whether the charge is a felony or misdemeanor, conviction may result in jail time and the loss of your right to own a gun. Felony convictions could also result in the loss of your right to vote.
