What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic assault, also known as domestic violence, occurs when an assault takes place against someone who is related by blood, marriage, a dating relationship, or even a roommate of the defendant. 

Assaults can be caused by:

  • inflicting physical bodily injury to another person
  • creating physical contact with another person that is extremely offensive or provocative
  • causing another person to fear imminent bodily injury

In other words, no actual physical contact must take place for someone to be charged with assault.

A domestic relationship is any of the following:

  • Spouse
  • Former spouse
  • Person with whom you have children
  • Any person related by blood or marriage
  • Roommate

With so much at stake, it should go without saying that finding a trustworthy and aggressive Murfreesboro domestic assault attorney to take on your case should be a top priority.
