Defining Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is any act or threat of abuse against persons with familial or domestic relationships.
Domestic violence includes:
- Physical assault
- Sexual assault
- Verbal abuse
When these acts are committed against a family member or an individual with whom the perpetrator has an intimate relationship, they are considered to be acts of domestic violence.
Domestic violence can be committed against:
- Spouses or ex-spouses
- Dating partners
- Individuals who have had a child together
Domestic Violence Restraining Orders
Though domestic violence can be prosecuted through the criminal justice system, victims also have rights and options in the context of family law. If you have been the victim of abuse or harassment, you can seek a domestic violence restraining order from a family law court. There is no fee to obtain a DVRO.
A DVRO can:
- Prevent the abuser from contacting or approaching you and your children
- Prevent the abuser from possessing or obtaining a firearm
- Remove the abuser from their home if they share it with the victim
- Remove the abuser’s child custody or visitation rights
Akbarian Law Group can help you seek a DVRO to ensure that you are safe from further abuse. Our compassionate domestic violence attorney in Encino is here to help.
Assisting the Accused
If you have been accused of committing acts of domestic violence and feel that a restraining order has unjustly been ordered against you, you have rights. Akbarian Law Group can represent you at the hearing to prevent the order from remaining in effect or to mitigate the restrictions against you.
