Cilil Harassment & Domestic Violence Disputes
A domestic dispute is a situation where two or more people living in the same household are involved in a verbal or physical altercation, and police intervention is requested.
Domestic violence can be a devastating form of abuse, especially when it occurs between two loved ones. Men, women and children can all be victims, people of all ages and all social classes.
Domestic violence is all too prevalent in the United States, the most common form being abuse against women. Over a million women in the United States are abused by their partner and can occur in any household. Violence against men may also happen, and they too have legal protection should such an abuse occur. A male may experience physical or sexual abuse from their partner constituting domestic violence.
The abuse may begin as an isolated incident and develop further into patterns of behavior, and the abuser may attempt to claim that the victim was somehow at fault by prompting the violence.
Unfortunately, abusive partners will only get more controlling and frightening as their abuse continues over time. If you are a victim of this abuse, it is important to contact an attorney, so that you may understand your rights and protect yourself from future harm.
Types of Domestic Disputes:
- Assault – hitting someone, threatening someone with a gun or other weapon
- Child Abuse/Child Endangerment – physical or sexual abuse, leaving in a hot car, driving drunk, not seeking medical care, or unsanitary conditions
- Stalking – following, texting or calling a person without consent, and causing emotional harm
- False Imprisonment – physically restraining someone (I.e. being locked in a room or made not to leave a place of residence)
Domestic disputes have an array of consequences, and defendants can face fines or jail time. If you have a domestic violence charge on your record, it can affect your employment, housing and your ability to obtain certain licenses.
You should not have to live in fear while trying to work and provide for your family.
