From Shadows to Light: The Influence of Domestic Violence on Divorce Proceedings in California
In the somber sphere of domestic violence, the impact on divorce proceedings in California is significant. Domestic violence, unfortunately, casts a long shadow that extends well beyond the immediate emotional and physical harm, affecting spousal support, child custody, and even the division of property.
California courts take allegations of domestic violence very seriously. An established history of abuse can influence the court's decisions, from limiting or denying custody rights to the abusive parent to impacting the amount of alimony awarded.
