What Constitutes Domestic Violence?

As citizens of the United States, we enjoy the privilege of being protected from various kinds of harm. These protections govern our relationships with all individuals, including those at home. Family members cannot treat each however they wish just because they are family. Their behavior toward one another must be in accordance with federal and state laws.

When it comes to relationships between spouses, former spouses, parents and their children, or members of the same family or household, there are many forms of conduct that are forbidden and should be reported if experienced.

Forms of domestic violence include:

  • Harassment
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Forcible touching
  • Sexual abuse
  • Stalking
  • Criminal mischief
  • Menacing
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Strangulation
  • Assault
  • Identity theft
  • Grand larceny

If you are the victim of any of these forms of domestic violence, you should report the incident immediately, seek any necessary treatment of injuries, and find a place of safety or shelter. An experienced family lawyer can help in a variety of ways, including filing a criminal complaint, filing a petition in the family court, and obtaining an order of protection to keep the abuser away from you and your children.

    Lynn M.

  • Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side.

    “I hired Robert Montefusco not one time but two times to represent me for custody of my child Each time I was represented with a favorable outcome. Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side. In a biased court system where the fathers are immediately the underdog , Robert was able to get me a better outcome than most fathers get. For that I highly recommend the Montefusco Law firm.”
