Domestic Violence

Protecting You and Your Children from Domestic Abuse

The California Family Court takes all instances of domestic abuse very seriously — so do we. Attorney Ralston began her career training in the domestic violence unit with the district attorney's office. She tenaciously protects the safety of victims and their children.

While we seek to protect and preserve family relationships wherever possible, safety and protection from physical or emotional abuse comes first. If you or someone you know has been the victim of family violence in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, or Placer/Sacramento County area, our family lawyer Susan J. Ralston can help you obtain a restraining order from the court against the offending individual. She will thoroughly investigate your situation when you are the victim or the "accused."

Because of the significant impact allegations or incidents of domestic violence can have on your divorce and child custody, it is very important to be honest with your attorney. Everything you tell us remains strictly confidential at all times.

Vigorous Defense Against False Allegations of Domestic Violence

Some parties use false allegations of domestic violence to gain a legal advantage over the other party to have them kicked out of the home, to gain exclusive custody of the children and to affect spousal support. These litigants abuse the justice system in an attempt to manipulate the judge's sympathy and perception.

Our attorney vigorously defends against false accusations of domestic violence to protect your legal rights and custody rights which may now be affected by a family law restraining order. If you have been wrongly accused of domestic violence, have been kicked out of your home and have been denied access to your children, attorney Ralston will help defend you and seek to restore your rights.
