San Diego Domestic Violence Lawyers

Helping Victims through Legal Proceedings

Domestic violence is a difficult and emotional topic. As a result, most instances of domestic violence go unreported, even if the issue of violence is very relevant in most divorce and family law proceedings. Domestic violence is typically perpetrated in a pattern of or cycle of abuse, which is often used as a tool by the abuser to ensure the victim does not end the relationship. In addition, the victim is often in denial regarding the abuse due to the psychological effects of the cycle of violence.

At Cage & Miles, our San Diego family law attorneys assess every potential domestic violence situation thoroughly in order to protect the victim and their children. Contact us online today.

What Is Domestic Violence?

Legally, domestic violence occurs between those with a specific familial or dating relationship.

This means that the victim and alleged abuser must be any of the following:

  • A married couple
  • An unmarried couple who have children together
  • A couple who is divorced or separated
  • Two people who are dating
  • Two people who live together, or used to live together, in a non-roommate capacity
  • Closely related people, such as a parent and child, grandparent and child, or siblings

Domestic violence can include physical harm, mental abuse, negligence, threats, and other serious accusations against you or your child or children.

In addition, abuse can be any of the following, as defined by the California Family Code:

  • Placing a person in imminent danger of bodily harm
  • Recklessly or intentionally causing harm
  • Sexual assault, battery, molestation, or rape
  • Attacking or harassing another individual
  • Persisting, abusive, and unwanted contact
  • Disturbing the peace of a victim
  • Stalking or ignoring the terms of a restraining order

The state of California thus recognizes many forms of physical and verbal violence. If you are the victim of any of the above, do not hesitate to reach out to our San Diego family attorneys today.
