Violence directed at a spouse, former spouse or partner is sometimes called domestic violence. Being married, divorced, or dating someone does not entitle you to hit, threaten, or abuse those at home. This type of violence or abuse is considered domestic violence and can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the extent of the violence and the type of injury. Some domestic violence examples:
- Physical abuse: Striking or hitting, punching or beating, hair pulling, excessive pushing or throwing a person to the ground, ordering attacks from a trained dog.
- Emotional abuse: Harassment, threats, abusive criticism, putting someone in fear for their safety or life, stalking
- Child abuse: child endangerment, physical child abuse, emotional child abuse, sexual child abuse
- Sexual abuse: Sexual coercion, inappropriate or unwanted sexual comments, forced or unwanted sexual acts or advances, physical assault and rape
