Understanding Domestic Violence Charges
In California, domestic violence laws are very specific. An individual is considered abusive if they intentionally or recklessly use, or threaten the use of, physical force. In these cases, the abused can be a current or former spouse, fiancé or live-in romantic partner. It can also include a person with whom you share custody of children.
If convicted of domestic violence, you could face a fine between $2,000 and $6,000 and one to four years of jail time.
