What Constitutes Abuse?

Charges of spousal abuse and domestic violence can stem from acts of aggression that cause harm or threats which cause a spouse to fear for their safety. This can include acts such as physically striking another person to attempting to control the actions of a spouse through coercion. Once an accusation of abuse has been made, a police officer can arrest a suspect if they believe that a continued threat to the victim exists or there is evidence of physical harm.
