Domestic violence is a serious but, unfortunately, all too common crime that occurs in households across the country. Causing physical harm to another individual within the household, or threatening to do so, is neither legal nor acceptable. In an intimate relationship, when one person commits assault or battery against the other, the abused partner has a right to file for divorce and fight for full custody of any children from the relationship, as well as even press criminal charges against the abuser.
