Domestic Violence Laws in California

California Penal Code 243(e)(1) defines domestic violence as a person willfully causing physical harm to their spouse, partner, significant other or person they were previously in a dating relationship. You can be charged with domestic violence if you have threatened physical, emotional or psychological harm to a person.

Consequences of Domestic Violence Convictions in California

California Penal Code 243(e)(1) classifies domestic violence as a misdemeanor. Domestic violence is punishable by up to a year in jail, fines, mandatory community service, loss of CA gun ownership rights, and could result in a protective order.

In addition to these legal penalties, you will likely face the effects of a damaged reputation and will be labeled as a violent person. These long-term consequences can follow you for years to come after a criminal charge and even a criminal accusation.
