Legal Protection Against All Types Of Domestic Abuse
Over the past several months, our nation has experienced circumstances that haven’t been seen in 100 years. Individuals have had to refrain from seeing friends and family, work environments, and social engagements.
Such quarantine measures have the intention of mitigating the spread of COVID-19. However, such drastic distancing measures have also left many individuals – spouses, partners, children and vulnerable parents – in defenseless domestic violence circumstances.
Domestic Violence – More Than Just Physical Abuse
Many people associate domestic violence abuse with physical altercations, like shoving, punching and hitting. However, unlawful domestic violence actions extend much further and can include:
- Emotional abuse, including relentless name-calling, continued deflation of self-worth, and stalking via voicemail or text messages
- Psychological threats such as threats of harm to you, your children and your pets, including threats of destroying your property
- Sexual abuse, including forced sexual contact or intercourse without consent

The state of North Carolina provides legal avenues for those in fear of domestic violence perpetrators. Protective orders, also referred to as restraining orders, are potential options that can prevent the abuser from speaking to or physically coming near you.
A court-ordered separation, referred to as a divorce from bed and board, could be another possible option. In certain situations, a court will require the abuser to leave your home, allowing you, your children and others who may reside with you to be safe from daily harassment or physical abuse.
