What Is Domestic Violence?

Generally speaking, domestic violence is a broad term used to refer to all types of actual or threatened abuse between family or household members. These relationships include current and former spouses or romantic partners, people who have children together, people related by blood or marriage, people related by adoption, and people who live together, including parents or stepparents and children who share the same household. When various forms of abuse or threats of abuse occur between these people, the perpetrator may be charged with domestic violence. 

Different types of domestic violence charges in Maryland include: 

  • Assault 
  • Battery 
  • Sexual assault and abuse, including rape
  • Child abuse 
  • Abuse of a vulnerable adult
  • Causing serious bodily harm 
  • Making violent threats
  • Making the victim fearful of imminent and serious bodily harm
  • Stalking 
  • False imprisonment 

Essentially, any violent act or threatened act between people in the above-mentioned romantic, social, or familial relationships may constitute domestic violence in the state of Maryland. 

Furthermore, it is a crime in Maryland to violate a protective order (also known as a restraining order). In certain cases, violating a protective order may be charged as a domestic offense.
