You say you paid off the fines. If you did that, that should have been your sentence. Were you found guilty already? Did you plead guilty? If so, the case is over. If not, you should contact counsel to represent you, and try for a expungeable probationary sentence, which will not be a permanent mark on your criminal record.

Instead of worrying about the punishment, you need to focus your attention on how you can avoid being convicted. Time to shop for a lawyer.

You will be required to have an anger management evaluation and take any treatment prescribed. You will also have to do community service, pay a fine and be on probation for one year.

If you paid a fine, your remaining punishment should be summary probation, domestic violence classes, and a restraining order.

    Without knowing the facts, I have no idea. DV 3rd degree is punishable by a maximum of one year in jail.

    This is very hard to predict. It depends on many factors. You need to discuss the specific facts of your case with your lawyer.

    What fine was paid off in full? IF you do not know the probable punishment, how would you know what the fine is? Your question makes no sense. You are probably looking at probation, then jail when you violate that probation, because you don't make any sense.
