California Self Defense Laws

In some states, you have more relaxed self-defense laws, but in the state of California, the use of force is a little stricter. If someone you love has been arrested because of self-defense, you should begin the bonds process as soon as possible. Like some of the other states, California uses a law called Castle Doctrine California, which means that you have a legal right to defend yourself in your home if someone breaks in. However, you shouldn't mistake this for believing that you can use as much force as you want because once the threat has been eliminated, you're not allowed to go any further. California also uses some of the elements of the Stand Your Ground laws in self-defense of the home.
