Child Custody in a Domestic Violence Case
Domestic violence absolutely affects child custody or visitation, whether the offense was against the child, the child's other parent, or someone else in the home. The court will take action to protect a child from violence in the home, which means that exposure to a parent with a history of domestic abuse could be considered detrimental to the child such that an order of joint custody would be inappropriate, as per Family Code 3044. The judge will apply a "rebuttable presumption" in these cases, meaning he / she will assume, unless proven otherwise by overwhelming legal evidence, that the offending parent should not have joint or sole custody.
