Domestic violence is a serious criminal offense which involves abuse between spouses, cohabitants, or family members. Due to the ever-increasing domestic abuse cases in California, California adopted Penal Code section 273.5 which states in part “Any person who willfully inflicts upon a person who is his or her spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, or the mother or father of his or her child, corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition is guilty of a felony, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not more than one year, or by fine of up to six thousand dollars or by both that fine and imprisonment.

If you have been charged with domestic violence, it is in your best interest to consult a family law lawyer who can protect your rights and interests in the face of said accusations.
