Can allegations of domestic violence result in restraining order?

When a couple does not agree on something, things can escalate quickly. In most instances, this means a quick argument which is resolved at a later time. However, sometimes disagreements between spouses or family members can get really heated and, on some occasions, violent. If you or a loved one has been involved in an incident related to domestic violence, understanding what could happen next is important for both parties involved.

Domestic violence could happen to you, your family

Everyone has disagreements. It is a part of life-it is not possible that you and your loved ones are always going to see eye-to-eye on everything. While most disagreements get resolved without major issues, sometimes things escalate. If a situation has become violent or you feel emotionally victimized by your partner or a family member, it could be a situation that would qualify as domestic violence.

Do domestic violence allegations leave you wondering what's next?

When it comes to life at home, it isn't always easy. Most of the time loved ones are able to get along, but sometimes conflict happens. If that conflict turns violent, one may be left facing charges related to domestic violence. There are several things to consider when charged with domestic violence and the potential ramifications could be more severe if convicted of domestic violence allegations.

California residents have the right to domestic violence defense

Charges of domestic violence filed in California are often the result of an argument that escalates between two individuals.
