Domestic Violence

Murrieta Domestic Violence Attorney

Riverside County Family Lawyers On Your Side

As a "no-fault" state, California does not require either spouse to pursue a divorce for any reason other than irreconcilable differences. There are circumstances, however, where the conduct of one spouse should be taken in account when a marriage is legally dissolved. Domestic violence or abuse, for example, is a serious matter that should be addressed during family law and divorce proceedings. In certain cases, it can become a criminal matter. Evidence of domestic violence can permeate through many family law matters, including:

  • Restraining orders, including emergency protective orders, temporary restraining orders, and permanent restraining orders
  • Divorce and separation agreements
  • Child custody and visitation rights

All forms and types of domestic violence – including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse – should prompt legal action. At Hanson, Gorian, Bradford & Hanich, our legal team is prepared to help protect your rights and well-being, no matter the situation.
