What is considered domestic violence?
The most common forms of domestic violence include slapping, pushing, and
hitting. Stalking can also result in domestic violence charges - whether
a restraining order had been issued or not. Any act of domestic violence
that occurs in violation of a specific order of protection will result
in a more severe sentence.
Our firm can handle the following kinds of domestic violence cases:
- Aggravated Assault
- Child Abuse
- Elder Abuse
- Spousal Abuse
- Criminal Threats
- And More
The main difference between domestic violence charges and other violent
crime charges is the relationship between the victim and the defendant.
The victim must be a family member through marriage or blood to the defendant,
reside in the same location as the defendant, or have a current or former
romantic relationship with the defendant for the charges to be categorized
as domestic violence.
What happens if I’m convicted?
The severity of sentencing is influenced by the extent of the injuries,
the involvement of minors, and the history of the offender.
A domestic violence conviction in California can result in:
- Up to four years in a state prison
- Fines up to $6,000
- Ongoing probation
- State-mandated counseling
A domestic violence conviction on your record could impact your entire
life. If you and your spouse or significant other share children, a domestic
violence conviction can make it so that you will not gain custody or visitation
rights. Also, if you are not a legal American citizen, a domestic conviction
can result in your removal from this country. Do not hesitate if you have
