What is Considered Domestic Violence?
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. This abhorrent violence includes behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish, or force them to behave in ways they do not want. Unwanted sexual contact, or sexual assault, is also a form of domestic violence. Almost all intentional torts can also be considered forms of domestic violence as well.
