California takes domestic violence issues very seriously. Both the accused and the alleged victim have rights that need to be protected.
If there is a real threat of harm, a court will issue a protective or restraining order. In most cases, claims of domestic violence are true, however, sometimes claims have no merit and are intended to make the accused look bad while in the middle of custody battles.
If you believe you are in danger and need to file for a protective order, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will make sure that the victim is protected and that the accused is held accountable for his or her actions.
