What Is Considered Domestic Violence?

Lawmakers, law enforcement, judges and juries do not take accusations of domestic violence lightly. While this area of law is constantly in flux, the organization of these laws almost always tips in favor of the supposed victims.

Domestic violence, or DV, can occur between any two people who live together — marriage or relationship status notwithstanding. If your partner calls the police and merely expresses that they were threatened by you, the responding officers are required to arrest you. This could include a range of threats, from menacing to harassment to damage of property and more. Afterwards, the state will pursue a domestic violence case against you, even if the alleged victim wishes to drop charges.
