What Does The Law Consider Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is defined in the California Family Code as abuse of a partner or child. Abuse includes both violence and threats of violence. An allegation of domestic violence that the court finds to be true has a significant impact upon a number of facets in your personal as well as professional life.

An act of domestic violence can shred the fabric of even the closest families and have long-lasting repercussions. For example, allegations of abuse can affect both child custody and spousal support. If you have been accused of an act of domestic violence, it is important to have an advocate on your side to preserve your rights.
