Forms of Domestic Violence
Domestic abuse can occur in many different ways. Although many people automatically associate physical violence with domestic abuse, abuse can occur whenever someone attempts to control another person’s life forcefully or manipulatively. In cases of physical violence, the law can step in and assist the victim. The following are some of the most significant types of domestic abuse:
- Spousal Abuse
- Child Abuse
- Domestic Assault and Battery
- Domestic Sexual Assault / Battery
To prevent further abuse, a victim may request that either temporary or long-term restraining orders be authorized. The terms of a particular order will depend upon the nature of the case, the perceived degree of danger, and other logistical concerns. Violations of the order may lead to criminal or civil penalties.
