What Is Domestic Violence?

Any type of violent crime may be classified as domestic violence, if the relationship between the alleged offender and victim fits into a category described in the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act of 1991. Qualifying relationships may include spouses, former spouses, household members, roommates, family members, parents with a common child, and people in a current or former romantic relationship.

Any of the following may be considered domestic violence:

  • Assault
  • Criminal mischief
  • Burglary
  • Stalking
  • Terroristic threats
  • Sexual assault
  • Criminal sexual contact
  • Restraining order violations
  • Criminal trespass
  • Lewdness
  • Harassment
  • False imprisonment
  • Homicide
  • Criminal restraint
  • Kidnapping

Through our years in practice, we at the Cifrodello Law Offices have dealt with numerous domestic violence cases. We have seen firsthand how law enforcement officers are practically required to make an arrest when called to the scene of an alleged domestic dispute, and we have seen how aggressively prosecutors pursue domestic violence convictions. This only strengthens our commitment to the full preservation of our clients’ rights and interests in the face of these charges.
