Domestic Violence Cases in Irvine

Domestic violence occurs between household members, such as spouses, ex-spouses, couples living together, unmarried parents who share a child, and those involved in intimate relationships. Domestic offenses can take many forms, from physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and abuse of elders and children.

Crimes associated with domestic violence include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Stalking
  • Harassment

You can be charged with domestic assault even when no injuries have occurred or are visible. Even in cases where the alleged victim does not wish to press charges, the prosecutor on the case can move forward against you. That is why you need a strong legal advocate on your side as soon as possible after an arrest.

If you are convicted of a domestic violence offense, the penalties imposed include jail time, heavy fines, community service, a 52-week counseling program, and you will likely be subject to a restraining order prohibiting you from contacting the victim.
