Millions of families around the country—including many right here in California—are forced to suffer the effects of domestic violence.

The compassionate team at the Law Office of Thomas Nicholas Cvietkovich is ready, willing, and able to help those affected by domestic violence remain safe and to create family law agreements designed to address the problem.

Domestic Violence Attorneys in California

According to the law, domestic violence or abuse is defined as:

  • Recklessly or intentionally causing/attempting to cause physical injury;
  • Behavior that places a person in reasonable apprehension of a serious physical injury;
  • Sexual assault;
  • Harassing, stalking, intimidating, threatening, or otherwise disturbing the peace of another person.

The nature of the relationship between the abuser and the victim is what makes such behavior considered domestic violence. Domestic violence includes any such actions committed by a person against:

  • A current or former spouse/romantic partner;
  • A co-parent;
  • A relative by blood, adoption, or marriage; or
  • A current or former member of the same household.

Family Law Considerations in Domestic Violence Cases

When domestic violence becomes an issue for parents who share custody of their children and parenting time, the behavior may affect the status of the existing parenting order.

Our attorneys will work with you in seeking a new order that fully protects your children from physical, emotional, and mental endangerment.
