Thousand Oaks Spousal Abuse Defense Attorney
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.
Without experienced and skilled legal assistance, you very well may find
yourself losing custody of your children and being unable to enter your
home. If you are suffering from abuse, whether physical or emotional,
you have a right to gain protection with a temporary or permanent restraining
order. Time is of the essence, in either case.
