Spousal Battery

Los Angeles Spousal Battery Attorneys

Any criminal charges have the potential to complicate your life for years to come. Spousal battery, spousal abuse or other domestic violence charges often hit home in very personal ways. If these charges stick, you may be blocked from entering your own home or spending time alone with your children. Particularly if you are in the process of a divorce or you see your children on a partial custody or visitation basis, your access to your children may be at risk after an arrest on charges of battering your wife, husband or partner.

At the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman in Southern California, we do more than simply fight for our clients’ constitutional rights.

They appreciate the time and effort we put into educating them on the criminal defense process. We prepare our clients to make the choices that are right for them. Most importantly, they appreciate our criminal defense skills, knowledge and experience.

Criminal charges of battery may be brought in connection with alleged actions committed “against a spouse, a person with whom the defendant is cohabiting, a person who is the parent of the defendant’s child, former spouse, fiancé, or fiancée, or a person with whom the defendant currently has, or has previously had, a dating or engagement relationship,” in the words of California Penal Code Section 243e. The statute specifies potential penalties and consequences of a conviction, namely:

  • A fine up to $2,000
  • Imprisonment up to one year
  • Both a fine and jail time
  • Probation together with a batterer’s treatment program or appropriate counseling
