These incidents are not always physical, but can also include verbal threats or emotional deprivation. If you or a loved one are facing any form of domestic abuse, our team at Friedman & Mirman Co., L.P.A. wants you to know that you are not alone.

What Counts as Domestic Violence
According to Ohio statutes, there are a multiple scenarios that constitute domestic violence. Many people assume that help from the courts may be obtained only if a perpetrator is forcibly causing bodily harm. However, help may be obtained even where there is the mere threat of force. Abuse of a sexual nature against a spouse or partner, as well as against a child, are also examples of domestic violence. Taking away one's property or income, destroying a person's possessions, or restricting one's whereabouts or relationships can also be defined as abuse.
Victims of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence can occur between any household member or former household member, including:
- Current and former spouses
- Current and former partners
- Parents and children of the abuser
- Parents and children of the abuser’s spouse
- Anyone else who currently resides or used to reside with the perpetrator
Obtaining a Civil Protection Order
One of the most helpful ways of defending yourself and any loved ones from domestic violence is by getting a civil protection order (CPO) that defends you against cruel behavior from the perpetrator. A CPO may require that the perpetrator stay physically away from you and your loved ones, colleagues, or anyone associated with you. The perpetrator must also immediately halt contact via other methods, such as emails, texts, or third party messages. A CPO could stop the perpetrator from exercising parenting time as well.
