Domestic violence covers all forms of abuse that is directed towards a spouse, a child, a family member, someone who you are in a dating relationship with, someone who you live with or someone who you have a child in common.

Domestic abuse covers a wide range of abuses ranging from assault, battery, verbal abuse, threats, child abuse, sexual abuse, rape, punching, kicking, strangling, slapping, hitting, unlawful confinement, all forms of physical abuse, drowning, burning and much more. Domestic abuse is a crime, and if these violent acts were exacted upon someone outside the home or anywhere else, they would constitute criminal offenses.

Even though domestic abuse is a problem plaguing Tempe and the rest of the nation, domestic abuse is also one allegation that can be charged against someone who is innocent of the crime. Either the allegations can be false altogether, or in some cases, the act was done so out of self defense. Domestic abuse does not only happen to women, men are victims as well, however their attacks go highly unreported due to embarrassment or not wanting to appear the weaker sex. Sometimes the accused, suffered years of abuse and finally fought back, only to have the tables turned against them, and have their abuser, accuse them of domestic abuse.
