Domestic violence and child custody

Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders

Los Angeles Domestic Abuse Attorneys

Domestic abuse and violence often carry serious consequences in both criminal court and Family Court. Allegations of domestic violence often lead to restraining orders, loss of civil liberties, firearm restrictions, criminal convictions, fines, and criminal sentencing including community service and incarceration.

Under California law there is a presumption that a perpetrator of domestic violence should not have sole or joint custody of their children. Therefore, an allegation of domestic violence must be treated very seriously not only to protect the interests of victims of domestic violence, but also to protect the rights of those wrongfully accused of domestic violence.

The attorneys of Brot and Gross as skilled trial attorneys vigorously represent both victims of domestic violence and those wrongfully accused of domestic violence. Since domestic violence hearings usually involve live testimony, it is critical for both the victims of domestic violence and those wrongfully accused of domestic violence to have skilled trial attorneys represent them in a critical hearing which will have long lasting affects on the rights of both the parties and their children.
