What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is never deserved, and there are some instances where an individual may not even recognize that abuse is happening to them. The most important step when taking legal action is to identify how the domestic violence occurred. Types of abuse include, but are not limited to, isolation, verbal abuse, physical violence, intimidation, sexual abuse, stalking, kidnapping, financial abuse, and harassment.

What differentiates domestic violence from other crimes is the perpetrator’s relationship with a family or household member. This is a broad definition which can accompany a range of situations.

A family or household member is understood in Ohio as a:

  • Spouse, former spouse, or romantic partner;
  • Child;
  • Parent or foster parent;
  • Extended family member; or
  • Child, parent, or extended family member of the spouse, former spouse, or romantic partner.

How Domestic Violence Affects Family Law Cases

Domestic violence can have criminal and civil implications, including affecting the procedure and outcome of family law cases. When one partner decides to remove themselves and their family from an abusive situation, even more care and attention must be brought to resolve the case. Or, if one spouse falsely accuses the other of domestic violence to gain an upper hand in family law proceedings, it is important to flesh out the truth and prevent rights from being taken away.

Domestic violence affects the outcome of family law cases, including those involving:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Property division
  • Restraining orders

A skilled family law attorney understands how to navigate Ohio law and secure the protection that a family deserves. At Fox & Associates Co., L.P.A, we can provide compassionate support as we guide our clients through this difficult time in their lives.
