Types of Domestic Violence and What to Do About Them
Domestic abuse and violence can take a variety of forms. When most people hear the term “domestic violence,” they immediately think of physical violence. However, it can take a variety of other forms, including:
- Financial or economic abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Psychological and mental abuse
- Sexual abuse
No matter what kind of domestic violence you or your family members are experiencing, you must take immediate action. One of the first and best things you and your loved ones can do is to go to a safe location and notify law enforcement of the crimes committed against you. If applicable, you may wish to press charges against your abuser and have them held accountable and sentenced by the court.
You may also wish to pursue divorce, a restraining order, or take other legal action to protect yourself after experiencing domestic abuse. Let us help.
