Domestic violence happens to anyone regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, economic status or gender. You may be married to your partner or you may be living together or dating – domestic violence affects all types of couples.
When a family is in crisis, children are often caught in the middle. Typically, a court grants a restraining or protection order to keep the allegedly abusive parent away from the family. Supervised visitation may be granted to the accused, depending on the case.
