Although this usually involves physical violence or abuse, it could also involve emotional or mental abuse, harassment, and stalking. Sexual assault or abuse are also considered acts of domestic violence, even between husband and wife. The bottom line is that your safety is important and if you do not feel safe, you need to take action. Our Jackson domestic violence attorneys can help you seek protection against your abuser and file for divorce if they are your spouse.
