Moreover, an Orange County Domestic Violence lawyer will defend charges that the accused harassed any person and made a credible threat to that person.

Our office has also defended our clients on many occasions showing the Family and Criminal Courts that there was no intent to place that person in reasonable fear for his or her safety. Our office has also proven that the allegations that the alleged victims family was in jeopardy of stalking were false and unfounded.

Also a person who is restrained must be extra cautious against the charges of stalking when they have a restraining order against them. Any violation of that restraining order can be an extra penalty issued by the Superior Court. So they will have to defend against a potential domestic violence stalking charge and a violation of a protective order.

It is important that a Domestic violence attorney help protect you from allegations that the Criminal or Family Law superior Court charges you with. The Superior court must show that there was some form of harassment where alleged perpetrator knew they were annoying the victim and did it for no reason other than to annoy that person.

A Domestic Violence lawyer will be able to vigorously defend the charges that there must be a course of conduct acted by the perpetrator. Course of conduct means that there are two or more stalking acts that occurred over a period of time. This can be easily defended because of the lack of specificity of the amount of time to commit the stalking.

Finally there must be credible threat with intent to place the targeted person in reasonable fear for their safety and must show that there was an apparent ability to carry out the threat and cause the person reasonable fear for their safety. No intent is necessary.

At the Law office of David P Schwarz we will assure that you will get the best possible defense against domestic violence charges that involve stalking. Please call our office for a consultation at 949 735 9266. Or contact us via the web or email us at
