Under the California Penal Code, domestic violence can range from physical acts such as hitting, slapping, or pushing, to emotional, verbal, and psychological abuse such as threats, intimidation, and stalking. Additionally, economic abuse, which includes controlling or withholding financial resources, is also recognized as a form of domestic violence.
