Facing Domestic Violence Charges?

By Bruce C. Bridgman   Nov. 17, 2010 4:25p

Domestic violence is the act of committing a violent crime against another person co-inhabiting a dwelling such as a spouse, child or elder. There are many different forms of domestic violence, but all forms are punished severely in court including many harsh sentences for jail time, probation, fines, community service and restraining orders can be filed against the alleged domestic abuser. While domestic violence charges are extremely serious, an experienced Orange County domestic violence lawyer may be able to assist those defendants requiring legal aid with thorough investigation of the alleged crime incidents and challenging the validity of any supposed evidence.

Domestic abuse charges consist of many different crimes and can include child abuse, spousal abuse, spousal rape and elder abuse. Domestic violence can also consist of both physical abuse such as hitting, kicking, biting, slapping or restraining, and other forms of abuse such as sexual abuse, intimidation, stalking, and controlling either physically or through economic abuse as in withholding money or abusing monetary communal holdings.

There are many causes behind perceived or actual domestic violence. In some cases, a domestic violence charge can result from a misunderstanding or miscommunication. In other cases a person's mental and psychological state may negatively affect their behavior, resulting in an inability to control their actions or react rationally to certain situations as a normal, healthy human being would.
