What is domestic violence?
Domestic violence refers to violence between spouses, couples, family members, and people who have a child in common. A victim of domestic violence can ask the state attorney to file a criminal complaint. Once an alleged victim files a petition requesting an injunction for protection against domestic violence, the alleged abuser may be ordered to:
- Refrain from further abuse
- Leave their household
- Surrender firearms
- Stay away from their residence
- Stay away from the victim's home, school, or place of employment
For a mother or father accused of domestic violence, the alleged offender may be ordered to relinquish custody of their children, and they may be ordered to pay child support.
Penalties for domestic violence typically include:
- Batterers intervention program
- Restraining order
- Community control
- Permanent criminal record
Palm Beach County has a "no bond" policy in domestic violence cases and the State's Attorney's Office has a "no drop" policy, meaning defendants can be prosecuted even if the victim does not want to file charges.
