Overview of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence law in California is designed to protect the safety of familial and intimate relationships. The State of California defines domestic violence in intimate of family relationships as a criminal act committed against an individual who falls into one of the following relationship categories: spouse, former spouse; a partner in a parenting, dating, or cohabitation relationship; those individuals who previously identified themselves as a participant in one of the above relationships. More often than not, child abuse and domestic violence are related to each other and occur concurrently.

Penal Code Section 242 states battery is "willful and unlawful use of force or violence against the person of another." When a defendant is charged with a violation of Section 242 of the Penal Code, several other charges may be filed in conjunction with the original charge. A charge of battery against an individual who has “forced violence” on an intimate or familial partner may be charges with a violation of Section 242 of the California Penal Code. In addition, if the prosecutor believes the harm inflicted is greater than normal, a charge of “serious bodily injury” (Penal Code 243d) may be filed.

Furthermore, California Penal Code 273.5 addresses the criminal nature of inflicting traumatic damage as the result of corporal injury on a family member or intimate partner, as specified by California domestic violence law. Under the state laws of California, individuals who believe they are in imminent harm may apply for restraining orders or protective orders. California’s legal system allows for the protection of individuals against all types of abuse. As such, victims of emotional abuse may also qualify for protective or restraining orders.

Police Reports May Seem Simple, But There’s a lot More To It

Unfortunately, the response system for domestic violence calls can be imperfect, and victims of domestic violence may become the accused. Self-defense against an abuser may result in an act of violence against the abuser. Gender bias may also be a factor during an investigation. Abusers understand how to manipulate the system, and it’s not uncommon for an abuser to accuse the abused. In cases such as this, victims may be arrested, while an in-depth investigation take place. Los Angeles prosecutors are some of the best in the nation. During this crucial time, the difference between a reduced charge or jail may be contingent upon the legal representation you choose. This is why contacting a Los Angeles based domestic violence lawyer is critical.
