Domestic Violence Attorney in Santa Barbara

Domestic violence can include assault, battery, sexual, financial or emotional abuse inflicted on a current or former spouse, intimate partner, dating partner, or family member. The good intentions of the laws designed to protect an endangered person are too often taken advantage of by a partner or ex-partner with a different agenda. Hard feelings in breakups and divorces, or child custody disputes too often lead to exaggerated or wholly invented accusations.

No matter how innocent you may be, it will take the help of an experienced domestic violence attorney to protect you from the harsh penalties which follow being convicted of a misdemeanor or felony domestic violence charge. The penalties may include:

  • Anger management and counseling
  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Community service
  • Jail or prison time
  • Parole

A domestic violence conviction can also affect child custody and visitation, future employment and other important areas of your life.
