What Constitutes Domestic Violence?

What Constitutes Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence refers to the act of abusing, harming, or instilling the fear of harm to another person. It typically occurs between people who have somewhat of a close or intimate relationship, such as those who are in a romantic partnership, or even between family members. Victims of domestic violence don’t have to face this difficult situation on their own, which is why it is essential you notify law enforcement about your situation before it escalates to a place it cannot come back from. In doing so, you will be able to document the issue at hand, preventing it from going unnoticed.

The following are examples of domestic violence, including but not limited to:

  • Hitting, punching, pushing, pulling hair, or any other forms of physical attack or violent behavior
  • Emotional abuse such as yelling, relentless criticism, name-calling, etc.
  • Harassment or stalking
  • Kidnapping or false imprisonment
  • Sexual battery, rape, assault, or any other unwanted sexual acts

If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the above, whether it be from a spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, domestic partner, or otherwise, look no further than Mitchell & West LLC. We won’t stand by and allow this behavior to continue.
