Domestic violence can have a serious impact on the life of an individual including their physical and mental well being. If you feel that you are being abused you have the right to obtain a restraining order.
California defines “domestic violence” as abuse perpetrated against a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, or former cohabitant. Abuse inflicted by one’s current or former dating partner or fiancé/fiancée is also domestic violence, as is abuse committed against the parent of a child by the other parent.
