I'm not sure what you mean?

If someone is taken to court for domestic abuse what would happen how would the case run? or would it be separate charges like GBH and/ or attempted murder?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 days ago.

I'm not sure what you mean by the first question?

They would decide on one charge or the other. They wouldn't charge both attempted murder and GBH. That would be inconsistent.

They may bring alternative charges of S18 and S20 but alternative charges are different.

Can I clarify anything for you?


Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Ok, so what would happen in the court if it was an attempted murder charge, if it was a GBH charge and if it was Domestic abuse? Im researching for a script and would like to know the ins and outs of what would happen. if you could explain what would happen in all three cases that would be great.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 days ago.

There isn't a charge of domestic abuse.

I'm not sure what you mean by what would happen? Can you be more specific?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
if there is no charge what would happen? would you take the defendant to court for GBH or? How would the court case be presented each day, how would it start, what would happen throughout and how long would it take to get to the verdict? I'm sorry I'm unfamiliar with law so Im trying to research into it.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 days ago.

I'm not sure I can really answer this online. It is something you would really have to go and experience.

The short answer is that it depends on so many factors it can't be summarised.

I will opt out for others.
