Abstract

Financial Intimate Partner Violence: When Assets and Transactions Become Weapons introduces the concept of financial intimate partner violence. The article compares Alaska's criminal law based domestic violence prevention approach with California's civil law based domestic violence prevention approach. The focus is on how each state system adjudges property management and control rights in a divorce, dissolution, or break-up; and on how domestic violence restraining orders are and can be effectively used to prevent or address financial domestic violence.

Keywords: domestic violence, domestic violence prevention, financial assets, divorce, dissolution, California Domestic Violence Prevention Act, Alaska domestic violence prevention, forfeiture
