What are legal remedies for domestic violence in Mississippi?
There are a number of legal remedies. The one that comes to mind first is going to be the criminal remedy. A person who has committed domestic violence can be arrested, can be jailed, can be prosecuted and have their rights to own firearms and that type of thing limited or restricted in the future. There is also a civil remedy, which means you take the action as opposed to a prosecutor or to the police force, bring it to an attorney such as myself or our law firm and file a protection order in the chancery or the justice court and then that will give you a measure of protection as well.
