What is domestic abuse?
The following types of acts are considered to be domestic violence:
- Attempting to or intentionally causing bodily injury
- Causing the victim or the victim's family to fear serious bodily injury
or continued harassment
- Committing an act defined under North Carolina General Statutes §§
14-27.2 through 14-27.7, examples include rape, sexual offense, sexual
battery, as well as statutory rape
Civil domestic violence occurs between those involved in personal relationships, such as:
- A person who you are dating or who you were previously dating
- A current or former household member
- A person of the opposite sex who has lived with you or is living with you
- A person with whom you have had a child
- A person who is related other than parent and child
North Carolina allows victims of domestic violence to apply for a Domestic
Violence Protective Order (DVPO) against your abuser. This order acts
similarly to a restraining order and can last for up to one year. You
may be able to file a civil lawsuit in pursuit of monetary damages for
any medical expenses you may have incurred from the abuse, as well as
compensation for your pain and suffering. Our skilled legal professionals
can examine your situation and determine the most appropriate course of
action to pursue.
