What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence is defined as one member of a household harming another member and falls into the area of criminal law. Parties in these cases do not have to be married or related by blood. Roommates, adopted or foster children, and unmarried couples can also be victims of domestic violence. Actions that are classified as domestic violence include:
- Physical assault and injury
- Verbal and emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Child abuse and neglect
When a couple separates or divorces, it is not unusual for false accusations of domestic violence to be made, followed by a filing of charges, often by the party who is trying to obtain custody of the children. When the innocent are charged with domestic violence, our firm is ready to step in.
