What Constitutes Domestic Violence? 

In North Carolina, domestic violence is defined as committing abusive acts against someone with whom you have a personal relationship. Common examples include: 

  • Physical abuse: This includes any act that causes bodily harm or injury to an individual, such as hitting, pushing, kicking, or using weapons.
  • Emotional abuse: This involves controlling behavior, verbal threats or attacks, isolation from friends and family, intimidation tactics, and other forms of psychological manipulation. 
  • Sexual abuse: This includes any type of unwanted sexual contact, such as rape and nonconsensual sexual acts. 
  • Financial abuse: Also known as economic abuse, this entails withholding financial resources to retain power and control in the relationship, such as preventing the victim from working or accessing bank accounts. 

Domestic violence perpetrators can commit domestic violence against various individuals, such as current or former spouses, dating partners, roommates, parents, grandparents, and other relatives. However, friendships and working relationships generally don’t constitute domestic violence. Our domestic violence attorneys can assess your specific circumstances to determine the best path to pursue in family court. 

Who Can File for a Protective Order in North Carolina?

Domestic violence can file for protective orders in North Carolina. Protective orders are court-ordered documents designed to protect against further abuse by prohibiting the perpetrator from making any contact or coming within a certain distance of the victim and their family members. They can also grant temporary custody of children and establish child support payments if needed. 

At Rech Law, P.C., our knowledgeable advocates can help you navigate the legal intricacies of filing for a protective order.
