I am embarrassed about this but a couple years back I had an unfavorable run in with a girl I was into, I got harassment charge out of this and nothing more. As fate has it we ended up dating long after the debacle was settled and now we have been living with each other for almost a year. My question is, does my harassment charge all the sudden turn into a misdemeanor of domestic violence because we live together now? The definition of misdemeanor of domestic violence is pretty clear here.

On my conviction papers from the court there is nothing about a misdemeanor of domestic violence. For additional clarification, I do not have a restraining order against me, I did but it was discharged at my conviction. Anyone got any thoughts on this, or should I start looking at getting it expunged.
