Our Georgia Defense Lawyers Fight for Results

In 2010, the Center for Disease Control found that 1 out of every four women and 1 out of every seven men are physically abused by those that they are in a relationship with. Partner abuse is a serious issue in Georgia and throughout the nation. Georgia law describes domestic violence as an action of abuse performed by one partner against another in a familial relationship. In Georgia, domestic violence is classified as family violence. Family violence can take place by past or present intimate partners, stepparents, parents, legal guardians, and other members of the same household.

Types of Abuse Recognized in Georgia

Domestic violence can occur in various ways. Physical abuse is the most common form of domestic violence and can include slapping, punching, hair pulling, or any other form of physical mistreatment.

Even the threat of abuse can be charged as family violence. Physiological abuse includes threatening behaviors, such as controlling of money and time. Typically, domestic violence occurs when the abuser wants the victim to feel inferior to him or her. Sexual abuse is another type of abuse that involves any forced sexual contact. This contact can be either physical or threatened.

Increased Penalties for Family Violence

If you have been charged with domestic violence, you could face severe penalties. Many acts involving family violence are more severely punished than when the same act is committed by individuals who are not in a domestic relationship. When the act of family violence is simple assault, it can be punished as a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature. The punishments can negatively impact the alleged offender's life.
