The California legislature has recognized that domestic violence is present in many households and is, therefore, a common issue in Family Law proceedings. As a result, the California lawmakers have enacted laws which appear in the Family Code concerning domestic violence issues.
A victim of domestic violence can obtain restraining orders against the perpetrator, which not only keeps the perpetrator away from the victim, but if the parties have children, can also affect and limit the custodial rights of the perpetrator.
