Domestic Violence

You Are Not Alone

An estimated 1 in 4 women, and approximately 10 million children each year are witness to or are affected by domestic violence, and domestic violence is one of the leading causes of divorce and separation. Both men and women can be victims of domestic violence, and because of the isolating nature of the abuse, and the fear that the abuse may escalate, many cases go unreported. The legal definition of domestic violence extends far beyond physical violence in the home, and can include behavior such as harassing, stalking, verbal and written threats, committed by a party who has a “personal relationship” with the individual seeking protections. The following relationships are considered “personal” by North Carolina Law:

  • Current or former spouses
  • Individuals of the opposite sex who either currently live together or have lived together in the past
  • Individuals who are related as parents and children or as grandparents and grandchildren
  • Individuals who have a child in common
  • Individuals who are current and/or former household members
  • Individuals of the opposite sex who are currently in a dating relationship
