A common misconception about domestic violence is that it is exclusively women suffering physical abuse from male significant others. Sometimes the situation is quite the opposite, but it can also include disputes between fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, same-sex couples, cohabiting couples, and other close family relations.
Abuse is not limited to physical battery either. Often, verbal, psychological, and emotional abuse can take place through other situations. Abuse can include threatening language or degrading comments, such as insults or verbal threats. Victims can also suffer from emotional trauma with abusers threatening self-harm or danger if their significant other does not stay in the relationship.
There is a wide range of other ways that abuse can manifest, such as social isolation and stalking, and it is important to understand if you or a loved one have suffered from any form of domestic violence.
If you have been the victim of domestic violence, you should not wait a minute more to remove yourself from the situation and seek aid. Karen S. Brown not only provides legal counsel but can help you find medical help and other support services to make sure you are safe and healthy.

Evidence of domestic violence in modern cases can be established by looking at newer channels, such as texting and social media. In recent years, courts have determined that this evidence may be presented to build a case and that it is weighted according to a variety of factors. Karen S. Brown and her team stay informed of laws that govern this evidence and how these laws change over time so they can use technology to their advantage.
