Domestic violence is no longer limited to violence against a spouse. Although a spouse is the usual victim of domestic violence, nowadays it can be a child, a roommate, a girlfriend or boyfriend or any other person you are living with under the same roof.
Domestic violence is the violent act of intimidating, assaulting and abusing a partner or a person you have been living with. Violence can be in the form of physical, sexual and psychological abuse. In some cases emotional abuse can be a form of domestic violence under certain circumstances. A violent partner is someone who always wants to exert power or control over the other person so they act abusive towards the weaker partner. Some domestic violence cases escalate to higher criminal charges and even attempted murder.
The most common domestic violence cases come in the form of physical and sexual abuse. When partners are physically abused and harassed they can file a domestic violence case in the nearest police station. You can also go directly to a lawyer so that they can help you file a case against your partner. The other types of domestic violence, psychological and emotional abuse, are a bit trickier. This is because sometimes evidence of such violence is hard to find. Witnesses for such abuse are also sometimes hard to find.
If you have been a victim of domestic violence you need a good lawyer to make sure that your offender gets the maximum penalty for domestic violence charges. If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence you will still need a lawyer to defend you against all the charges.
