Domestic Violence Law
Domestic violence is a very serious matter handled through the court system. It includes the physical, sexual, or emotional abuse that occurs between couples who are married, engaged, living together, dating, or separated. Domestic violence can affect all types of relationships, including heterosexual, lesbian, or gay.
When domestic violence incudes physical assault, such as shoving, pushing, or hitting, or any type of unwanted and/or forced sexual abuse, it can be considered a criminal offense and an arrest can be made. If this happens, it can have very serious implementation in your life, whether you are the one being abused or you are the abuser.
