Good afternoon,I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.Are you specifically referring to sub paragraph (e): Has not been committed for the abuse of a controlled substance or been found guilty of a crime under the provisions of chapter 893 or similar laws of any other state relating to controlled substances within a 3-year period immediately preceding the date on which the application is submitted;...

Here is the law regarding domestic violence convictions:
