Pasadena Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys

Assisting Clients in Pasadena, California

Domestic violence is behavior that is used by a person in a domestic relationship to control the other. Partners may be married, living together, or dating. Domestic violence can occur between spouses, parents, or siblings and may occur once or over a long period of time. In many cases, physical force or verbal abuse may be used to make the victim too fearful to report the domestic violence to authorities.

Once the police are involved in a case of domestic violence, it is no longer a personal family matter but a criminal matter. A criminal defense attorney is needed to handle the legal process. If you live or work in Pasadena and you are involved in a domestic violence charge, it is important that you contact our firm as quickly as possible. You may be forced to move out of your home and have visitation rights to your children limited or even terminated. If you are convicted of a crime, you may face imprisonment, fines, restitution, community service, and court-ordered counseling.

Domestic Violence

Usually a domestic violence crime is classified as a misdemeanor. However, if sexual assault or abuse of a minor is involved or serious bodily injury to the victim, it may be classified as a felony. Also if the defendant has a prior offense, this may lead to harsher punishments. Penalties for a domestic violence crime in California can include up to 4 years in prison and $6000 in fines, depending on the circumstances.

Domestic violence includes physical assaults such as hitting, punching, and shoving, sexual abuse where unwanted sexual activity is enforced, and stalking. Although emotional and psychological abuses are not considered crimes, they may lead to criminal violence.
