San Diego Spousal Abuse Lawyers
In domestic violence cases, situations involving spousal abuse are taken very seriously. The relationship that one has with his or her spouse is typically among the most intimate and complicated in one’s life. Unfortunately, the bond shared between spouses sometimes leads one to feel entitled to abuse the other, and it can make it intensely difficult for an abused spouse to leave a relationship that they know is harmful.
If you or someone you love is involved in an abusive relationship, your first priority needs to be getting away from the abuser. After that, it is wise to contact an aggressive, dedicated, and caring attorney to advocate for your rights.

Forms of Abuse
There are three broad categories of abuse that one might be forced to endure. Each has its own particularly troubling effects and can bear on aspects of a victim’s life long after the abuse has stopped. The four primary forms of abuse are:
- Physical abuse – physically striking, punching, pushing, or hitting someone, resulting in bodily injury
- Psychological or Emotional abuse – degrading the victim through use of belittling and insulting comments or through a pattern of behaviors and actions intended to diminish one’s self-esteem
- Sexual abuse – any forced and unwanted sexual activity imposed upon one person by another, including degrading sexual comments are also considered sexual abuse.
