Marital Rape Cases
Marin, CA Attorneys Representing California Marital Rape Victims
It is estimated that 10-14% of married women are raped by their husbands. Marital rape hits at the core of power issues in an abusive relationship, and while the intimacy involved in a marriage or serious relationship may blur the lines in the eyes of the victim, make no mistake: no means no, no matter what the relationship is called.
If you are in a marital, dating, or cohabitating relationship and you have been forced to have unwanted sexual relations, or if you suffered unwanted intercourse when you were sleeping or otherwise unable to object, California considers you to be a victim of rape. For discrete, compassionate, and above all effective representation in cases of marital rape, you can rely on the family law attorneys at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP.

Experienced. Sensitive. Dedicated.
This kind of sexual assault, marital rape or “wife rape,” is often accompanied by or followed by other dangerous types of violent or emotional abuse, and a man who forces his wife or date to have sexual relations is a particularly dangerous type of abuser. It is important that you get the help you need now if you are in a relationship with an abusive partner.
Often, but not always, marital rape or partner rape is a form of spousal abuse suffered by the woman in the relationship. If you are a victim of emotional or physical abuse in addition to sexual assault, it is critically important that you stop the cycle and remove yourself and, if applicable, your children from the situation. We can assist you with options for that initial separation and, once you and your family are safe, we can ensure that you understand your partner’s rights and obligations in terms of support.
