Under the law in the state of California, a prosecutor may decide to charge domestic violence as a misdemeanor or a felony. How the prosecutor will decide to charge the offense often depends on the circumstances of the alleged crime. If there were serious injuries involved, it is likely that the offense will be charged as a felony. If there were only threats or minor injuries, it may only be charged as a misdemeanor.
