Common Examples of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can involve emotional abuse, a wide range of criminal offenses, manipulated finances, neglect, and more. Many of these behaviors are more obvious than others, such as physical violence which draws the attention of neighbors or bystanders. Others may be much more subtle or even involve the neglect or endangerment of shared children. If you have been the victim of family violence, we can help you seek protection.
