Domestic Violence Archives

Taking action in a domestic violence situation

It is a sad reality that domestic violence and abuse is far too common in America, and Maryland is not immune to these types of situations. Every couple has their problems, but there is simply no place for violence in a home. When a domestic violence situation in Maryland does arise, people need to know that they are not without options.

Domestic violence can have life-long effects

When people in Maryland think of domestic abuse, they may envision physical violence. However, domestic abuse can be financial, emotional or physical in nature. Any type of domestic abuse can deeply scar a person for the rest of his or her life. Domestic violence can occur not just between spouses, but between parents and children, between family members living together and between two people who once had a romantic relationship but are no longer together.

How do protective orders help victims of domestic violence?

While no relationship is perfect, sometimes a person's safety is placed in jeopardy by a spouse, romantic partner or relative. When this happens, a person in Maryland might want to seek a protective order. A protective order is a civil order of the court that prevents one individual from doing certain things against the individual seeking the order. There are temporary protective orders and final protective orders. These orders are meant to protect the safety of victims of domestic violence.
