According to California state laws, domestic violence can include the following offenses:
When it comes to domestic violence charges in California, the laws are convoluted, and an arrest for any of the aforementioned offences usually starts a chain of multiple cases. Domestic violence suspects may face further charges relating to the violent incident, but the person who has allegedly been mistreated may also sue them in civil court. Domestic abuse occurrences also frequently lead to couples leaving their relationships, which can result in family law proceedings in a separate family law court as well as difficult child custody and property distribution concerns.
Domestic violence convictions, like other criminal charges, sometimes have ramifications that go beyond a fee or a prison. Attorneys, physicians, nurses, pilots, stockbrokers, teachers, and other professionals may have their professional licenses temporarily or permanently revoked.
We think that everyone deserves a second opportunity, especially those who have been through legal situations as difficult as domestic violence charges. It's one thing to face the consequences of one's legal wrongdoings, but it shouldn't come at the expense of one's ability to move on and live a moral life.
