Domestic violence occurs when one member of a relationship uses physical or emotional abuse to gain power or control. This abuse can occur between family members, spouses, a child, a parent or cohabitants. Domestic violence situations typically involve strong human emotions and instinctive actions and reactions that have nothing to do with criminal intent. A private dispute becomes a public matter when domestic violence charges come into the picture.
Was It Really Domestic Assault Or Abuse — Or Just A Heated Argument?
Time and again, an argument or fight between lovers or spouses turns into a criminal case unexpectedly when one party calls the police in an attempt to control or punish the other. Your spouse, partner, significant other or cohabitant may have changed their mind even before the police arrived but it was too late to prevent your arrest. If you were the one who called, you may have tried to recant, to no avail. This is because police are primed to make an arrest after a domestic violence call for help.
