If you are accused of violent or aggressive behavior within the home you live in, or even outside the home in either public and private places, you may be charged with what is widely known as domestic violence.
Those who may have accused you of violent or aggressive behavior are most often spouses, domestic partners, or same-sex partners, but accusations and subsequent charges can also come from roommates, parents, adult children, grandparents, housemates, cousins, aunts and uncles, or anyone else with whom you share a common living space.
And, it doesn’t matter if you know the legal definition — domestic violence charges can include accusations of any kind of hitting, kicking, or physical acts of violence — but, they can also include charges of raising your voice, name-calling, or implications of mentally or emotionally harming someone with nothing more than words.
