Domestic violence is an act of violence towards a spouse, partner, boyfriend, or girlfriend. These incidents can take place only once or many times over the years. Often, when one of the spouses decide to file for divorce, there are ongoing conflicts regarding division of assets or child custody, the negative feelings towards the other spouse leads to violence. There are also situations when a spouse continues to live with an abusive partner, because of the fear of violence.
In these situations, legal help can be used to file a divorce and get restraining orders against the abusive partner or spouse. It is normally believed that domestic violence only covers physical abuse, but that is not true. Domestic violence also covers any sexual abuse, or emotional abuse.
