Michigan’s Domestic Violence First Offender Program

If you have committed a Domestic Violence for the first time you may be eligible to get your case dismissed under Michigan’s Domestic Violence First Offender Program (the Spousal Abuse Act MCL §769.4a). Regardless of whether the alleged victim consents, the prosecutor must consent or the judge lacks power to impose this program.

Generally the Defendant is placed on probation and the court will dismiss the case upon successful completion. Many times probation in Michigan’s Domestic Violence First Offender Program includes: no contact with the victim, domestic violence classes, paying fines and costs and other provisions.
