The District Attorney’s Office is committed to ending domestic violence in our community. We have a team of Assistant District Attorneys who exclusively prosecute crimes — both misdemeanors and felonies — that occur between people in intimate relationships. These prosecutors are trained to handle the sensitive issues that arise in these cases, and they work every day to protect victims and seek justice. The DA’s Office is fortunate to have community partners that offer resources to help victims safely leave abusive relationships. For more information about local resources, shelter, safety plans and more, please contact Safe Alliance or Mecklenburg County Domestic Violence & Violence Prevention Services.

If you are the victim of a crime involving domestic violence, the DA’s Office will mail information and other materials to you. Please review the materials, complete any forms as requested and return the necessary information to the DA’s Office as soon as possible. If you have not received a victim impact statement via the U.S. Postal Service, or if you need an additional copy, please call the DA's Office at 704-686-0700.

If you have any questions that are not answered here or elsewhere on our website, please call the DA’s Office at 704-686-0700.
