Domestic Violence & Domestic Abuse

The terms "Domestic violence" or "domestic abuse" go beyond the most common understanding of the crime i.e. violent behaviour from a man towards a woman usually in the home environment. It is not even solely about physical abuse. The crime of "domestic violence" or "domestic abuse" can include verbal and non verbal abuse or violence and include physical and mental abuse. It can be directed towards a spouse or domestic partner, male or female , children and the elderly.

As a victim of domestic violence, whether you have been physically or mentally injured, you are the blameless victim of a violent crime and there could be a payment due to you from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority a government body that makes compensation awards.
