Jo Carrillo addresses how abusers frequently use family financial assets and transactions to further harm and control their partners. Her primary focus here is on the response and methodology of various legal systems to financial IPV. She finds that typical legal remedies for intimate partner-violence do not adequately address financial IPV. In analyzing systems which successfully prevent and address financial IPV, the author examines some of the better laws and practices in California, recommending them as models for other states in addressing financial IPV.
