FAQ #24: What is the Difference Between a Domestic Disturbance and Domestic Violence?

The difference between domestic disturbance versus domestic violence generally has to do with whether you put your hands on someone, you touched them or you caused another object to touch them. A domestic disturbance can be something such as an argument that has gone too far with shouting and just based on the verbal actions alone, a neighbor has called because they are concerned that it may rise to the level of domestic violence.

If you are involved in a domestic disturbance situation, it is unlikely that you would be facing arrest if that is the basis of the complaint. If you are facing a domestic violence situation, you have now been labeled as someone who has used violence against another person. In that situation, it is very important to contact our firm so that we can do everything possible to control the situation as soon as we can to stop it from being blown out of proportion.
