Domestic Abuse And Violence

California law defines domestic abuse in a number of ways, including making threats and disturbing the peace of the victim. Domestic abuse may also involve accessing a victim's email account without authorization and disclosing information found there.

These examples are in addition to the physical violence of domestic assault.

The Los Angeles divorce and family law attorneys of Joel S. Seidel & Associates have extensive experience in this tumultuous area of law. If you have spousal abuse concerns, do not hesitate to contact our offices in Century City or Northridge.

Strong Legal Advocacy For Victims Of Domestic Abuse

If you are a victim of domestic violence or abuse, it is important that you obtain a family lawyer who can help you quickly file for a restraining order to protect yourself and your children. Restraining orders may also have a significant impact on child custody, visitation and other aspects of a divorce case.

We run our law offices with care and compassion, and we have the legal knowledge and resources to help protect you and your family.

Representation For Those Falsely Accused

Unfortunately, sometimes domestic violence allegations are used as a litigation tactic in contentious family law cases. If you are falsely accused of domestic violence, it is important that you defend yourself against the false claims. We have a great deal of experience in such cases. The courts take strong action to protect domestic violence victims, and you may face criminal charges if the allegations are not appropriately addressed. In addition, a restraining order usually will restrict or cut off access to your children.
