Domestic Violence

It is a common misconception that domestic violence can only occur between a married couple or domestic partners. Under Georgia law, domestic violence can happen between any two people who have lived in the same dwelling within the previous two years. Domestic violence is taken very seriously in Georgia, and decisive action will be taken by law enforcement officials if they respond to a call and believe that someone is in harm's way.

Physical violence does not have to take place for law enforcement to take action in a domestic violence case. If you are in reasonable fear for your own safety or the safety of your children, the aggressor can be removed from the dwelling. Even persistent name-calling or other aggressive language can constitute grounds to petition the court for an order of protection.
