Oceanside Divorce Lawyers: Domestic Violence and Spousal Abuse
Although family violence is often portrayed as a man abusing his wife, abusive dynamics can actually exist in any relationship where one person is controlling another or taking advantage of his or her position of power over another. Whether abuse is taking place between parents and children, senior citizens and their caretakers, or within same-sex relationships, it is always inexcusable.
