A restraining order attorney can help you with accusations of domestic violence. If the domestic violence accusations are factual, they have an effect on all parties involved, physically and mentally. Restraining orders in California are designed to protect individuals and families that are in peril.
What is domestic violence and how can a restraining order attorney help?
Domestic violence is described as mistreatment that takes place within a family. The violence may be bodily, sexual, and/or emotional. When a person reports an occurrence of domestic violence, the individual being accused may be charged with domestic violence by the legal system. In California, an individual can still be prosecuted with a domestic violence charge even if the assumed victim does not press charges. California takes domestic violence allegations very seriously.
Even if the domestic violence accusations are false, the individual being charged with the domestic violence will need to protect their good name from such accusations. Having a domestic violence charge on ones record can affect ones employment. This is just another good reason to contact a skilled restraining order attorney in your area.
In California, a domestic violence matter can also be treated as a criminal law matter, not just a family law matter. In some cases a criminal matter will be heard before the family law matter is presented, in order to prevent the family law findings from being introduced into the criminal law case.

If a perpetrator ignores a protective order, the perpetrator may be incarcerated.
