Domestic Violence occurs when one person in a close relationship tries to engage in destructive behaviors that may include physical assaults, sexual abuse, stalking and emotional abuse. While victims may be either male or female, most victims of domestic violence are women. The violence may occur constantly or only sporadically.
Every day someone is verbally, emotionally, sexually, or physically abused by his or her spouse or cohabitant. What makes these stories so heart wrenching is that they often involve families that are being torn apart by acts of violence. When the goal is to stop domestic violence, the laws can have an appropriate use with some limitations. If you or someone you love is a victim of domestic violence, it is important to know that David Littman, Esq. is on your side. Contact us for more information.
