What Is Considered Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence refers to any behavior used by one individual in a domestic relationship to harm or dominate the other person. This can include isolation, physical violence, intimidation, sexual assault, verbal abuse, and more. Domestic violence doesn’t only apply to married couples or romantic partners—it can also apply to roommates, children, family members, ex-spouses, and other domestic relations.
How Domestic Violence Influences Divorce Cases
Domestic violence significantly impacts family law cases. Especially in matters of divorce, domestic violence can become more dangerous when one partner decides to leave the abusive relationship.
Domestic violence may affect the following in the divorce case:
- Restraining orders
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Spousal Support
In general, California family code presumes that an individual charged with domestic violence in the past five years is unable to have joint or sole physical custody of the children. In addition, a partner convicted with any form of domestic violence is unable to receive spousal support. The law is generally favorable to victims of domestic violence in divorce cases; however, you need the skill of a practiced domestic violence lawyer to ensure you and your family are well-taken care of and your rights are protected.
