What is "Domestic Violence?"

Most people think of physical confrontations between spouses or partners when they think of domestic violence, but the truth is that, legally, the definition is much broader. Domestic violence can constitute physical abuse or—in some cases—emotional or mental abuse.

The following can be considered domestic abuse in Maryland:

  • Spousal/partner abuse
  • Child abuse
  • Elder abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Intimidation and/or threats
  • Stalking or harassment
  • Confinement against one's will
  • Isolation against one's will
