Domestic Violence is a violent confrontation between family or members of a household involving physical harm, fear of physical harm or sexual assault. Domestic violence has a broad definition with the Court including verbal abuse. These include spouses, former spouses and those who are biological or legal parents. No one deserves to be abused. Victims do have rights and there is assistance from the police, courts and government agencies.
Here are some of the forms of domestic violence:
- Abuse to gain power over another
- Physical abuse of all forms including pulling, pushing, choking, slapping, hitting, forced intercourse and use of a weapon
- Depriving someone of sleep or food, using isolation
- Emotional abuse from humiliating insults to playing mind games
- Using threats or coercion such as threats to harm some member of the family, making one do something illegal, threats to commit suicide
- Economic abuse including preventing someone from working or retaining a job, withholding funds needed for basic necessities, stealing money or exclusion from all financial matters of the household
- Intimidation by making the other party afraid, destroying property, displaying a gun, using children to harass her/him
