What Is Considered Domestic Violence In Maryland?
Times have changed. Domestic violence awareness has grown and both the public and the courts have a broader and more realistic understanding of what violence, threats and intimidation look like in the home.
The state of Maryland considers domestic abuse to be any of the following:
- Assault or battery, including shoving, slapping and poking in the chest when angry or arguing
- Any act that places you in fear of immediate serious bodily harm
- Terroristic threats, saying “I’m going to kill you” or other verbal threats intended to cause terror
- Attempted or actual rape or sexual offense
- False imprisonment, such as holding you against your will
In order to be considered domestic violence, these actions must be taken against a relative, roommate, domestic partner, child or spouse. You do not have to be married or going through a divorce as domestic violence means that it happens in a family or in a home.
