What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is charged under California Penal Code 243 and is defined as physical violence, against a fiancé, spouse, partner, or parent of your child as a serious crime. Under a California law, you can be charged with domestic violence if you have been accused of making threats of physical violence, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse to anyone in the protected class.

Penalties for Domestic Violence

If you have been charged with domestic violence, you could be looking at the potential for very serious penalties. The penalties will depend on the circumstance around your individual case. In addition to these serious penalties, you will likely face harsh societal consequences and will likely be labeled a "violent person."

  • Domestic violence penalties can include:
  • Jail time
  • Mandatory domestic violence classes
  • Fines
  • Restraining orders
  • Loss of child custody rights
  • Loss of CA gun rights
