Other Domestic Torts

California Assault and Battery Attorneys

When a person intentionally or negligently causes harm to a spouse or partner, the injured party can claim compensation for medical costs, lost income and emotional distress. Called domestic torts, these types of cases can present numerous challenging legal and factual issues. The harm can occur during a marriage or relationship, during its dissolution or after the termination of a marriage or relationship.

Some of the possible claims for a domestic tort action include:

  • Assault and Battery
  • Rape or Sexual Abuse
  • Invasion of Privacy
    • Publication of intimate photos
    • Gaining unauthorized access to an e-mail account, cellphone or computer
    • Wiretapping
  • False Imprisonment
  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
  • Fraud
  • Interference with Custody Rights

Your Rights as an Injured Spouse

California is a no-fault divorce state. This means that you have no avenue in the divorce process to obtain redress for injuries suffered as the result of an assault, invasion of privacy or another tort. You must file a separate legal action in Superior Court. Our lawyers can review your case and discuss your legal options with you to determine whether you are entitled to damages for domestic torts.
