 California Defines Domestic Violence as:  intentionally or recklessly causing or trying to cause bodily injury, sexual assault, making other people feel reasonably afraid that they or someone else are in danger of immediate bodily injury, and, or any other behavior that could cause a court to issue a domestic protective order, including harassment, unwanted telephone calls, stalking, threats, and physical assault.

All that conduct is considered domestic violence when it's committed against the following people: current and former spouses, people who live together or formerly lived together on a regular basis, people who are related by blood or marriage, people who have children together, and people who are or have been dating or engaged.

Fathers must understand that Domestic Violence in Family Court can be found by a "propoderance of the evidence", which is considerably lower than the "beyond reasonable doubt" used in Criminal Court.

When it comes to child custody, the California legislature's public policy is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of children. According to the legislature, it is detrimental to a child if domestic violence or abuse is perpetrated in the child's home. The legislature's policy is also that all court orders have to be made in a manner that ensures the safety of the child and the child's family members. Thus, California custody law requires judges to take domestic abuse into account when determining legal and physical custody.
