Domestic Violence Defense Attorney in Santa Clarita

Persuasive Counsel, Deep Understanding & One-on-One Communication - (661) 338-6455

According to California law, domestic violence crimes are defined by the relationship between the accuser and the accused. These crimes are committed by one family or household member against another, or between intimate partners. These relationships are defined in State statutes and can be flexible. For example, while a dating relationship is easily defined as a social and romantic partnership, the definition of a family or household member is more extensive and nuanced.

For example, these relationships may include:

  • A spouse or a former spouse
  • Parents who share a child
  • People with a parent-child relationship, including stepchildren, stepparents, grandparents, and grandchildren
  • Adults who are related by blood or marriage
  • Adults living together, or who have previously lived together
  • Roommates of former roommates
  • Those who are currently dating or who have previously dated

To further complicate matters, domestic violence and assault can be used as a weapon against the accused and charges can be brought about to gain an upper hand in a variety of family law matters, particularly child custody and support issues. This is why it becomes even more important that you retain the services of an attorney who will listen to your side of the story, share your concerns, and work with you to create a solid case that defends your rights and best interests.
