What are the different forms of domestic violence?

Domestic violence takes many forms. When a person is being abused, it is understandably traumatic. They may find themselves living in fear of their abuser, they may also have no idea what they can do to prevent further abuse from occurring. It is a scary situation to be in, but there is help out there. Before taking action, the first thing they should know is what the different forms of domestic violence are and which one they have experienced.

The following are the different forms of domestic violence that a person may experience:

  • Emotional abuse.
  • Physical abuse.
  • Economic abuse.
  • Sexual abuse.

A person may not know exactly what is considered domestic violence or how they can stop their abuser from hurting them. Once they recognize what type of abuse they are experiencing, they can come up with a plan to put an end to it. One solution to this problem is to get a protective order, which will keep them safe from further abuse temporarily. The goal here is to give the abused time to figure out how they can permanently remove themselves from this dangerous situation while protecting them from future abuse.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of domestic violence, consider contacting an attorney. Victims often feel helpless, but they should know that have options and various ways to help them put a stop to their abuse. No one deserves to be abused in any way. Abusers should face the consequences of their actions and an attorney can help with fair compensation.
