What Can Be Classified as Domestic Abuse?

Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, carries many serious allegations that can ruin the lives of anyone accused of engaging in such activities. The court recognizes several forms of abuse in these cases.

Emotional Abuse
If you have allegedly manipulated someone to make him or her feel bad, this is known as emotional abuse. Emotional abuse is a difficult allegation, as there is often no physical evidence left behind to give conclusive proof of psychological damage.

There are still elements that a court could use to charge you with emotional abuse. Any of the following actions could qualify as abuse:

  • Criticism
  • Name calling
  • Telling the alleged victim that no one would ever want them
  • Criticizing children
  • Telling a child about marital or relationship issues
  • Intimidation
  • Destruction of property
  • Pet abuse
  • Verbal Abuse

Some signs of emotionally abusive relationships that a court may look for include:

  • Fear of disagreement with a partner
  • Fear of the alleged victim spending time doing his or her own activities
  • The alleged victim fears that the accused will commit suicide if the victim leaves
  • The alleged victim claims the accused turns into different people

Spousal Abuse
Spousal abuse is any abuse that may be directed at a partner or spouse with whom you are engaged in a relationship. The spousal abuse itself is not a separate charge but is a major contributing factor toward successful accusations of domestic violence. This violence can also happen during sex or in a sexual or intimate environment.

Family Violence
Family violence is any abuse (including sexual) that is directed not just to a partner or spouse, but to a child or children, grandchildren, grandparents and any family members which are within your home.

Penalties of Domestic Violence
If you are found guilty of alleged domestic violence, you could be charged with a first-degree felony, with up to 99 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

Some of the big deciding factors in the prosecution of domestic violence include:

  • Your relationship to the alleged victim
  • If you have prior convictions for domestic violence
  • If it is alleged that you choked or suffocated the alleged victim
