What Is Considered Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence can take place between spouses, roommates, family members, significant others, and parents and children. It can take a number of forms, but typically is defined as an act of violence against a person who lives in the same home as you do.

Examples of domestic violence can include the following:

  • Causing or attempting to cause physical harm
  • Stalking, harassing, or threatening
  • Assaulting another person sexually
  • Destroying personal property

What Is My First Step after Calling the Authorities?

The first thing you will want to do after calling the authorities is to seek an emergency protective order. These can be obtained from your local law enforcement office. Essentially, these orders are a temporary restraining order that requires your abuser to stay away. It will also grant you temporary custody of your children, which is especially important if your abuser was the primary custodian. Once this is granted, you will need to file a domestic violence restraining order for more permanent protection.
