Protecting Your Family from Domestic Violence
When a spouse or other family member is abusive or creates a hostile situation in the home, you and your family could be in danger of becoming victims of domestic violence. Domestic violence is any situation in which a member of your household intentionally intimidates or physically assaults you or your children. There are a number of kinds of domestic abuse, ranging in severity. However, any circumstance of domestic violence is dangerous and should be handled with the aid of law enforcement and a skilled attorney. The emotional, mental, and physical anguish that domestic violence causes can lead to serious and long-term baggage. Many men, women, and children fail to report domestic violence until the situation escalates to unsafe levels.
Types of Domestic Abuse
Domestic violence often goes unreported due to the various types of abuse that can be inflicted on a person. While some types may seem subtle, the cycle of abuse can intensify over time. The following are examples of domestic abuse:
- Physical violence
- Hostile and degrading verbal abuse
- Threat of violence
- Sexual abuse
Any amount of abuse is unacceptable and dangerous for you and your family. Seek help from an experienced family attorney today if you believe that your spouse is putting your family at risk.
