What Constitutes an Act of Domestic Violence?

In Florida, domestic violence has two basic elements. First, there must be an act or a threat to act in a manner that will cause harm to another person.

The acts that are considered to be domestic violence include:

  • Sexual battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Battery
  • Aggravated battery
  • Stalking
  • False imprisonment
  • Kidnapping

The second element of domestic violence in Florida is that the victim must have a familial relationship or be in the same household with the person engaging in the act of domestic violence.

Relationships that are covered under the domestic violence laws include:

  • Spouses and former spouses
  • Individuals who have a child together, either while married or unmarried
  • People who are related by blood
  • People who live together as a family or did so in the past

Filing for a Restraining Order

Victims of acts of domestic violence can seek protection by filing for a restraining order. This is a legally binding document that requires one individual to stay away from the individual who has applied for the restraining order. Restraining orders are an important means of protecting domestic violence victims from future harm.
