Family Violence in California
Our state classifies domestic violence as “family violence” cases, which means the violence can occur between different members of the family, not only just spouses.
People involved in this violent action must be any of the following in order for the charge to be domestic violence:
- Current or former spouses
- Dating couples
- Roommates or housemates
- Couples who share a child in common
The various actions that could be considered domestic violence include the following:
- Causing fear of imminent bodily injury
- Sexual abuse or exploitation
- Emotional abuse
- Neglect, such as depriving spouses, children, or other family members food, a safe shelter, or proper clothing
- Economic abuse, such as taking control of a family member’s bank accounts or investments
- Causing bodily injury to another: hitting, slapping, choking kicking, or using a weapon as a form of physical abuse
- Causing physical contact that could be considered as offensive or provocative
Unlike the assault laws of other states, a police officer does not have to witness domestic violence in order to make an immediate arrest. This means that you could be arrested and charged with the crime of domestic violence based on the word of an angry spouse or out of an act of retaliation. There are many cases in which fraudulent activity results in criminal charges for an innocent person. Attorney Robert Miller understands the embarrassment, fear, and anxiety that you may be experiencing, and you can look to our firm for the legal assistance that you need in your case.
Attorney Miller has many years of experience in defending the rights of criminally accused, and throughout his years of practice, he has gained prestigious awards and recognition for his excellent practice. He has received Yelp’s Client Choice Award, and the AVVO top rating for client results, which is the highest rating that an attorney can achieve.
If you are facing criminal charges of domestic violence, then waste no time in contacting our firm for the aggressive representation that you need in your case.
The penalties for domestic violence can range from probation and anger management classes or the state batterer’s treatment counseling program for first-time offenders to felony charges and incarceration in more severe cases, or where the reported injuries were more severe.
We also have current information about Orange County assault and anger management classes approved for court.
