Domestic violence is a crime.

Have you been charged with domestic violence in Maryland?

Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, child abuse is usually defined as a pattern of abusive behaviors by one or both partners in an intimate relationship such as marriage, dating, family, friends or cohabitation.

Domestic violence can come in many different forms including physical aggression (hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, throwing objects), or threats thereof; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; controlling or domineering; intimidation; stalking; passive/covert abuse (e.g., neglect).
