It is an unfortunate fact that many San Diego Area families and households struggle with domestic violence on a regular basis. In some cases, assault and abuse lead directly to divorce. In other situations, a pattern of domestic violence restraining orders, hearings, and anti-harassment orders becomes an unfortunate part of daily life.
When most people think of domestic violence, they associate it with the idea of a physically heated quarrel between a husband and wife or two people who have an intimate relationship. While spousal abuse is one type of abuse claim, domestic violence in the home could include physical, verbal, or psychological harm caused or threatened to be caused by cohabitants, children, parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, or even grandparents.
