Domestic Violence Archives

Domestic violence defined

Sometimes, violent behavior in a couple's marriage can result in the filing of divorce or separation paperwork. If someone in the union is fearful that the violence may continue, a protection order may be sought from the court. An order for protection may be issued without the requirement of divorce or separation papers. Nevada residents may want further clarification of how domestic violence is described in state laws. A violent act may be in the form of battery, assault or the threat of such actions.
