Domestic violence, in Florida, and most other states, is defined as acts of violence committed against a member of one’s family or household. Much of the time, these crimes involve a spouse or partner, an ex-partner, a co-parent, or a relative (through either blood or marriage). In Florida domestic violence laws protect both, one’s cohabitants and previous cohabitants from acts of violence, as well as current and previous dating partners. There are many different individual crimes that may be categorized as “domestic,” including: assault, battery, stalking, and kidnapping, as simple or aggravated charges.
