What are the domestic violence diversion programs?

Pre-trial diversion programs are one of the major ways to get a domestic violence charge dismissed. 

 

If you qualify for a diversion program and complete it, the charges against you are guaranteed to be dismissed—making the diversion programs a great way to avoid trial, which is NEVER a sure thing.

 

However there are some downsides with the diversion programs. One, they usually require a higher level of anger management, sometimes all the way up to the 26-week Batter’s Intervention Course.  These classes are time-consuming and costly.

 

Also, if you don’t complete every single requirement, or are re-arrested you will fail out of the program.
