I am so sorry to hear about this. Are you safe now? Away from your husband? I hope you are in a safe place.

I'm sure they will provide a lawyer for you. Please let them know that you are a victim of domestic violence. You dropped the charges so I assume there must be some kind of record. I understand the hesitancy to call and tell on your husband. Please go somewhere safe. I hope you know someone there.

You're afraid that you will not get a job because of the arrest?

Innocent until proven guilty.

I didn't see any crime you commit to be arrested , they arrested you just for his T-shirt which is not even true , what if you really did that , so what , You should have told them it was self defense . May God be with you , I am really sorry for what happened to you , When you first met your husband , you didn't feel that he is a bad guy .

Firstly, your husband deserves a fate which I will not list here but I hope you know where I'm going with it :ranting:

Secondly, I really really hope this will be a huge lesson in your life. Please do not forgive him anymore. You have given him too many chances.

Lastly, it is time to leave the toxic home. Do not worry, there are solutions for you. Your life is not over, I promise you.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW AND QUICKLY:

-Gather ALL evidence, documents, paperwork for your immigration and both your domestic battery cases. Do NOT leave anything behind.

-Google the nearest battered women shelter, find which one has open rooms

-If the house is not safe to stay one more second, take all belongings and paperwork and go to the nearest police station.

YOU WILL SURVIVE THIS, and I believe in you. We are all here for you. (L)

Edit: If you are scared he will beat you if you try to leave, call the police now and let them be with you while you gather everything.

Wow, I am so sorry about this....

Unfortunately, Domestic Violence & false accusations of Domestic violence are common here in the United States. I was also arrested for domestic violence on a false accusation. I have since those years ago become a nurse and an advocate for victims of domestic violence.

worst of all, if your arrested at all. Even if it was a false arrest, it will always be on your record!!! A police officer 10 years from now will still see that on your record search if anyone ever looked.

ONLY A FEW SOLUTIONS EXIST: ( for your legal problems )

1. It sounds like you need legal "defense", a lawyer. You need to find a lawyer or a "company/firm" that not only works in criminal defense but also immigration! You may need some immigration protection depending on the type of "charge" you received. This process here in #1 is lengthy and the law system here in the United States is known for being slow. However, it is also known for being a money-#######. While bribes are illegal in the United States, I have realized from experience that money can pretty much make any problem go away. So, if you value your new life in the United States, then get a lawyer!

2. You could just do nothing. Our legal system in America provides you with a FREE criminal attorney to you if you cannot pay for one. You will goto a pre-trial conference. The prosecutor ( the people who are after you ), will probably offer you some sort of plea-deal. They will offer you something like "Plead guilty, and we will drop the charges down to a misdemeanor and give you 1 year of probation. If you accept that deal, then you are finished. Or you can refuse the deal and the entire process will go to court ( like you see on TV )..... The biggest concern of mine that I have for you; is THE Exact charge they arrested you for. Because usually a person who is arrested only for their first time, usually does not get a felony for domestic violence. what did they charge you with?

3. You could abandon your citizenship. When you are released out of jail they tell you not to leave the state or the United States. But, it's possible.... you could get on a flight right now and go back home. But you would be abandoning your citizenship, leaving un-resolved legal matters, and making it extremely hard to come back to the United States.......... I would know because my wife took this option #3 before we got married.

Again, this whole situation sucks. Often times in these situations, not everyone is completely innocent........ There are many more types of abuse that purely physical. If you need to chat, or if you need more detailed information on the "legal process" here in America... Send me a private message and I can help you navigate through it. I have been arrested more times than I would like to admit.

OPTIONS REGARDING ABUSIVE SPOUSE:

- Please read the comments above from Shauna&Wael.

- Victims of domestic violence are protected here in the United States.

If you have not already left your spouse:

1. First thing to do is call a "domestic violence" center in your local town. If true that the police were already there once before, then they probably gave you a letter or a hand-out paper that lists several resource centers in your home town.

Your Goals should be to:

1. See if you can file a temporary injuction. A lot of states have protections in place for you and frequently they can give you full control of the house where you live. Especially if you are the victim and you have nowhere else to go. This is state-dependent and not all of the US states are the same.

2. Or find other housing alternatives: friends, family, or such as a woman's shelter , homeless shelter,

3. Talk to a lawyer, and find the correct path for fixing your legal problems

4. JOB - Make that money $$, you will need it.

Escaping Domestic Violence is not something that is easily done. Here in the United States it can be even more difficult given the housing situation here in America. It is extremely expensive to try and leave a spouse with nothing on your back and not a dollar to your name. But, you should ask for those resources we have mentioned..... And all you can do is say that "I deserve better", and "you will get through this".......... Because, I promise you. You can do it....

God bless.

(PS) - Send me a message if you really do need some guidance. I can help you find local resources in your home town also.

try to get your husband to recant his story. Then, if possible, have your attorney try for a lessor offense, one not in the DOMV rhealm. Right now, you have no conviction record, just an arrest. If you can get it adjudicated to a lessor misdeamenor charge (fighting maybe), or dismissed if your husband recants, you can later have it expunged depending on your state. Under no circumstances should you take a witholding adjudication.
