Colorado Domestic Violence Laws & Penalties

Under Colorado law, domestic violence means an act or threat of violence against a current or former spouse or the other parent of your child. Unlike some other states, there are no exclusive “domestic violence” (DV) charges in Colorado.

Instead, domestic violence is a sentencing enhancement that makes a crime more severe and increases the penalties imposed; typical crimes with domestic violence enhancements include:

  • Assault & Battery
  • Child Abuse
  • Elder Abuse
  • Harassment
  • Menacing
  • Sexual Contact
  • Stalking (Vonnie’s Law)

What Are the Penalties for Domestic Violence?

The penalties for domestic violence vary based on the charge filed, but a conviction of any domestic violence crime comes with additional penalties:

  • Anyone suspected of domestic violence can be arrested, regardless of whether the alleged victim changes his or her mind.

  • A domestic violence charge triggers an automatic restraining order that makes it impossible to legally enter your own home, consume alcohol, or contact the other party by any means.

  • In a domestic violence conviction, the judge may order the defendant to complete a DV treatment program.

  • Additionally, domestic violence can come with an assault in the first degree (class 3 felony up to 32 years in prison & $750k in fines) or third degree (up to 2 years in prison & $5k in fines).
