What Kind Of Behavior Would Be Considered For A Domestic Violence Injunction?
Domestic violence can take a number of forms, including:
- physical behavior (slapping, pushing, smacking, punching, pulling hair or shoving)
- forced or coerced sexual acts or behavior (unwanted fondling or intercourse, or sexual jokes and insults)
- threats (threatening to hit, harm or use a weapon)
- psychological abuse (attacks on self-esteem, attempts to control or limit another person's behavior, repeated insults or interrogation)
- stalking (following a person, appearing at a person's home or workplace, making repeated phone calls or leaving written messages)
- cyberstalking (repeated online action or email that causes substantial emotional distress)
Sometimes many kinds of the above-mentioned abuse go on at the same time in a household.
