Birmingham Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Defining Domestic Violence in Alabama

The definition of domestic violence declares it an act of violence that has occurred against a family member, which is a very serious accusation that must not be taken lightly.

Any of the following behaviors can be considered acts of domestic violence:

  • Emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Economic abuse
  • Using force against another
  • Cause an injury to another
  • Intimidation or threatening
  • Keeping another person isolated
  • Controlling another person
  • Sexual abuse

The courts do not look too favorably on these charges and, thus, prosecutors can be ruthless in their attempt to undermine you. The penalties you face can be harsh on your finances and your emotional or physical health and could place you at risk of losing relations with your family.
