WHAT IS A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGE?
Domestic violence refers to acts of violent or abusive acts committed by one family or household individual to another. This can come in the forms of both child and spousal abuse as well. Domestic violence is not only a physical act, it can occur if the person is showing controlling or threatening forms of behavior. People often refer to this as a “cycle of violence” because it can become ongoing if not reported. The punishment for a domestic violence crime is based off various factors including:
- Whether or not a restraining order was violated
- Whether a minor was present during the time of violence
- The severity of the victim’s injuries

- means of communication with the protected party.
- Establish a temporary child support and spousal support order.
