What Is Domestic Abuse?
When an individual is abused by another person who is closely related, it is called domestic violence. This could be abuse received from a spouse, domestic partner, child, parent, or a person from a current or previous dating relationship.
Domestic violence can take a variety of forms and can be either actual or threatened abuse.
Common examples of domestic violence include:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual assault
- Destruction of personal property
- Annoying phone calls
If you are a victim of any type of domestic violence, you can take legal action against your abuser. First, if you are in immediate danger, leave the residence and call the police for help. Next, request a domestic violence restraining order from the court to ensure the protection of you and your loved ones.
Domestic Violence and Divorce
If your divorce case involves domestic violence, it can impact several decisions that are made by a court. The issues that could be primarily affected are child custody and spousal support. A judge may rule that an abuser has no custody or visitation rights. In addition, the court may choose to award more spousal support to someone who has been abused by their spouse.
