Rancho Cucamonga Domestic Violence Lawyer
California Statistics for Domestic Violence
According to the California Department of Justice, there were more than 170,000 calls related to domestic abuse in 2007, which is the most recent year for available data. An estimated 40 percent of these calls involved domestic violence which allegedly involved a weapon of some kind (such as firearms and knives). These are not minor statistics and clearly demonstrate how severe of an issue that domestic abuse is in Rancho Cucamonga and throughout the entire state of California.
In 2011, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) released a fact sheet showing statistics regarding domestic violence in the state of California. These were drawn from over 97 out of 100 local domestic violence programs in the state. They noted that during the 24-hour period of the census more than 1,000 calls to domestic violence hotlines were made; this resulted in more than 53 calls every single hour.
Understanding the Problem of False Allegations
While domestic abuse is a serious issue, it is unfortunate to note that in many occasions, the accused can actually be the true victim. False allegations are not an uncommon occurrence and can cause a simple argument to spiral out of control. It's not unheard of for a romantic partner to make the call accusing domestic violence out of jealousy or rage. It can even be a maneuver to gain the upper hand in a family law case.
Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE) conducted a nationwide survey regarding false allegations of domestic violence in 2011. The results were astonishing. Nearly one in every ten respondents stated that they themselves had been falsely accused and one in six said that they knew someone who had. Even worse? More than 25 percent of all the reported false accusations were involved in a child custody battle.
