Domestic violence is one of the most prevalent health concerns in Pennsylvania and throughout the greater United States. Sadly, it is also one of those issues that can get swept under the rug. Although many suffer at the hand of an abusive spouse, partner or other family member, many might fail to recognize the actions as domestic violence. If they do recognize it, they may not know what options are available to them.
At any time, a victim of domestic violence may need assistance. However, victims may hesitate to seek out such assistance if they are uncertain about any steps along the way. For one, victims may not know what legally constitutes domestic violence. What's more, they may be uncertain as to what exactly transpires once a domestic violence case is brought to court.
