Understanding Domestic Violence
In layman's terms, domestic violence occurs when one spouse experiences actual physical abuse, threats of immediate physical abuse, or severe psychological abuse by the other spouse. When such spousal abuse occurs, even accidentally, in the presence of a child, it is also deemed domestic violence to the child. Family law courts provide remedies for victims of domestic violence including spouses, children, and other family members or persons who currently are or formerly were dating or cohabitating with the accused abuser.
