Are you a victim of spousal abuse, or accused of this crime?


Spousal abuse and other crimes of domestic violence are serious charges. They are often fueled with strong, negative emotions, and as such, can become quite complex. If you are convicted of spousal abuse, you could be facing incarceration, a criminal record, and more. The Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village divorce attorneys at Richard Ross Associates represents individuals who have been accused of spousal abuse or are victims of domestic violence. We have been helping individuals with family law issues for many years and we know the importance of addressing these cases professionally and with speed.

There can be several defenses to the charge of spousal abuse. One example is proving that the accused was actually defending him or herself from the alleged victim. It's also possible that the victim exaggerated the facts of the incident, or even fabricated the story. It has occurred that one party falsely accused the other of spousal abuse as an effort to get the upper hand in a child custody case. There can be other situations that present themselves with a viable defense as well. Our firm also can help you to seek a restraining order immediately if you are being abused by a spouse or other domestic partner.

Spousal Abuse and Child Custody

You do not want to face spousal abuse charges on your own. The cards are stacked against you. That is why it is crucial to obtain legal representation.
