The Many Forms Of Abuse
When people first hear the term domestic violence, they may think mainly of physical abuse — also known as battering — inflicted on one person in an intimate relationship by the other person. But this isn’t the only way abusers inflict pain and control over their victims. Several other forms of abuse also fall into this classification:
- Coercion and threats
- Economic abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Stalking or cyber stalking
- Using children
As a domestic violence lawyer, Amber can assist you in trying to obtain a restraining order or protective order to ensure your home, office, and vehicle are places of comfort and safety, not fear. Protections can even be put in place ordering abusers not to be in possession of firearms during the pendency of a protective order.
Once your protective order is in place, Amber can help you explore other options for important issues, such as child support, spousal support, and the possibility of obtaining an immediate divorce so that you can move forward with your life sooner.
