Domestic violence is an act of violence against a family or household member. Although domestic violence is at its lowest level a misdemeanor, it can be enhanced up to a felony level with a prior conviction. Many jobs will not allow employees to continue work while a case is pending. Even an allegation results in removal from the home.
Domestic violence reports to law enforcement are met with vigorous investigation as domestic situations can become serious quickly. This can mean police entering your home, and immediate arrest if there is physical evidence that matches the story of the reporting party.
Domestic violence allegations are often based on an injury and the word of one person. Special interest groups have kept pressure on law enforcement and the legislature.
