Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can include physical abuse, assault, battery, sexual assault, kidnapping, false imprisonment, etc. The abuse may occur during a relationship, while the couple is breaking up, or after the relationship has ended. The key elements of domestic abuse are: intimidation, humiliation, physical injury, or mental abuse.

The domestic violence may happen between spouses, ex-spouses, relatives by blood or marriage, or anyone else who lives or has lived together in the same house as a family unit, or any persons who are parents of a child in common, regardless of whether they have been married, who commits domestic violence or has reasonable cause to believe he/she is in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence, and it appears to the Court that an immediate and present danger of domestic violence exists.

Domestic abuse often escalates from threats and verbal abuse to physical violence, and may even end up in murder. You may go to court yourself for an injunction to protect yourself against domestic violence, whether you are separated or not, and/or have a legal immigration status in the US or not.
