Domestic violence laws prohibit the use of physical force or threats of harm against an intimate partner or cohabitant. The term “domestic violence” is sometimes considered to also include child abuse and endangerment and not just actions against a romantic partner.
Being convicted of domestic violence can not only affect your life negatively due to legal consequences, but you may also find that a restraining order is taken out against you and that you are no longer able to visit the person in question, their home, or see your children.
Domestic violence is commonly thought to include violent actions or threats against a spouse or loved one, but this crime encompasses other people in close relation. For example, you could be accused of domestic violence against an ex-spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, or a family member.
