Domestic Violence

Many people believe that the term “domestic violence” refers to physical harm. However, domestic violence can actually take many different forms. Verbal abuse and the infliction of emotional harm can also be considered forms of domestic violence.

Domestic violence can have a number of ramifications and may, in many cases, be considered a crime. If you or someone you love has been charged with domestic violence, contact the San Jose criminal defense lawyers of The Law Office of Daniel Jensen, P.C. at (408) 296-4100.

Forms of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a broad term used to describe many types of abuse for many different types of relationships. Domestic violence can occur between married couples, unmarried couples, friends, and relatives. The perpetrator and the victim can be a man or a woman.

Typically, instances of domestic violence include one or more of the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Verbal abuse

In many cases, stalking is also considered a form of domestic violence. In general, physical abuse and sexual abuse are the most likely forms of domestic violence to yield criminal punishment, though punishment may result from the non-physical forms of abuse depending on the circumstances. If you have been accused of domestic violence, it is very important to understand what this term may mean under the law.
