Understanding the Nature of Domestic Violence

Has your partner been physically hurting you? Do you feel like he/she is always playing mind games in an attempt to control you? If so, you may be a victim of domestic violence. This term applies to any harm that is caused by one person against another in an intimate or family relationship.

While women are usually the ones affected by domestic violence – every 15 seconds, a woman in America experiences abuse at the hands of a loved one – it can affect everyone in a family. Children are also hurt by domestic violence even if an abuser never actually touches them. Just witnessing and hearing violence in the home can harm a child for life.

According to national statistics, one out of every four women in the United States will experience domestic violence at some point during her life. Since domestic violence is not always reported to the police, local and state government officials can only estimate the number of attacks each year. Some experts believe that 2 million to 4 million women are hurt annually by a partner, spouse or loved one.

If you have been subjected to domestic abuse, now is the time to contact Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC to consult with one of our Raleigh family law attorneys. We can help you put an end to maltreatment and offer support as well as legal resources during this tough time in your life.
