Family Law Court San Diego - Domestic Violence Counts in Custody Cases

A regular family law case in San Deigo was complicated by the fact that there was domestic violence done by the father against the mother during marriage, and eventually cost the father his custody of the children.

Acts of violence had been ongoing throughout the marriage of this couple and had turned into a violent explosion on Super Bowl Sunday.  The mother, a resident of Oceanside and the North County Judicial District, had requested a domestic violence restraining order against the father for these acts of violence.  Ultimately, the divorce court in North County granted a restraining order against the father and made an order giving the mother custody of the children.

In making the order, the judge found that under California Law there was a presumption that the person who committed domestic violence should not have primary custody of the children.  The father was not able to over come this presumption against him and the mother was awarded both legal and primary physical custody of the children.

The laws that helped the mother get custody of the children in this case are a clear message to parents.  The message is that domestic violence will not be tolerated by the courts and that there can be severe consequences impacting your rights to legal and physical custody of your children if you commit acts of domestic violence.
