What Is Domestic Violence? 

Domestic violence is abuse or dangers of abuse when the individual being abused and the abuser are or have been in an intimate relationship (wedded or domestic partners, are dating or used to date, or lived respectively, or have a kid together). It is likewise when the abused individual and the harsh individual are firmly related by blood or by marriage. 

The domestic violence laws state “abuse” is: 

Truly hurting or trying to hurt somebody, intentionally or carelessly; 

Sexual assault; 

Making somebody sensibly apprehensive that they or another person are going to be genuinely harmed (like dangers or vows to hurt somebody); OR 

Conduct like harassing, stalking, threatening, or hitting somebody; disturbing somebody’s tranquility; or destroying somebody’s very own property. 

The physical abuse isn’t simply hitting. Abuse can be kicking, shoving, pushing, pulling hair, throwing things, scaring or following you, or keeping you from openly coming and going. It can even include physical abuse of family pets. 

Additionally, remember that the abuse in domestic violence doesn’t need to be physical. Abuse can be verbal (expressed), enthusiastic, or mental. You don’t need to be truly hit to be abused.
