Types of Domestic Violence

If your partner makes you feel unsafe in any way, you may be the victim of domestic violence. Here are a few types of domestic violence that you may wish to speak with a lawyer about.

  • Assault: Assault refers to any threat that instills a reasonable fear of bodily harm. You deserve better than to live in constant fear.
  • Battery: Battery occurs when an individual physically harms another. If you have cuts or bruises caused by your partner, you may have a better chance of successfully filing a restraining order.
  • Sexual Battery: No one has unrestricted sexual rights to any other person—even after marriage. If you are coerced into sexual acts against your will, you should hold your partner accountable for his crime.

Responding to Domestic Violence

The difficult thing about domestic violence is that it often occurs between people who love each other very much. If you are the victim of domestic violence, you might not know how to react.

  • Finding a Safe Place: Though it may be tough, it's important to distance yourself from your partner and your abusive relationship. Let friends and family members help you stay safe in the short term until you find a more permanent solution.
  • Filing a Restraining Order: If you're still afraid for your safety, you may need to file a domestic violence injunction (restraining order) against your partner. This is a court order that can prevent your partner from coming near you under penalty of law.
  • Criminal Charges: If your partner commits violence toward you, he or she may be a threat to others. Under some circumstances, criminal charges may be appropriate.

Domestic violence is a difficult area of law that rests somewhere between family law and criminal law.
