The types of domestic violence that can be carried out include:
Physical Abuse: Includes any physical contact that is intended to inflict harm and/or
injury—slapping, punching, throwing objects, etc.
Sexual Abuse: Includes any situation in which unwanted sexual acts are forced upon another,
whether through verbal threats or physical force.
Verbal Abuse: Includes any verbal threats or aggressive verbal language—threatening
physical harm, derogatory remarks, constant criticism, etc.
Emotional Abuse: Includes any behavior that is meant to embarrass, control, degrade, or
isolate the victim—blackmailing, undermining another's self-esteem, etc.
Economic Abuse: Includes withholding another's economic resources in an attempt to maintain
control over the victim.
If you have experienced any of this kind of behavior from a domestic partner
and/or member of your household, you may have grounds to file for a restraining
order. If you feel like your life is in danger, then you should not hesitate

Reasonable evidence of domestic violence could also be grounds for loss of
