How are Domestic Violence Cases Handled?

There are three types of courts that might handle a domestic violence case. These are:

  • Criminal Court – In a criminal court, the state prosecutes the abuser for a crime involved in the domestic violence act (violation of protection order, vandalism, trespassing, etc.)
  • Civil Court – In a civil court, the person who was abused might sue for damages. For example, the abusee could bring a sexual harassment or personal injury civil lawsuit.
  • Family Court – A domestic violence can be brought to a family court during divorce proceedings since it has an impact on the results of a divorce (such as which parent gets custody of the child).

Common Forms of Domestic Violence

There are many misconceptions about domestic violence – some people believe that it is only physical in nature or can only be committed by a romantic partner or spouse. The truth is that anyone living in the same household – including a parent, roommate, or ex-spouse – can become the victim of domestic violence.

There are many forms of domestic violence, which may include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Threats of abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial control/abuse
  • Stalking
  • Harassment

Types of Restraining & Protective Orders

There are several types of protective orders that can be used to help you seek protection from abuse. An emergency protective order can be requested if you need to seek immediate, temporary protection from an abuser.

The next step is to seek a temporary restraining order from the court, which lasts 15 days or until a hearing is set to discuss a permanent restraining order. At the next hearing, a permanent restraining order, which lasts up to five years, can be discussed. The offending party will have an opportunity to be present. You can count on our strong advocacy to prepare your case and represent you during these hearings.
