Domestic Violence is a common issue that by some estimates affect one in every four families in the United States. Current Domestic Violence laws in California carry stiff fines and penalties including jail or prison time. When called to investigate a domestic violence incident, if in doubt, police are inclined to arrest one or both parties involved in the “domestic disturbance” and let the courts sort it out later. We all have problems, and we all need help from time to time.
