DOMESTIC ASSAULT AND BATTERY
Most importantly, the Domestic Assault and Battery is defined as, for example: The unlawful, offensive touching of a family or household member.
Virginia defines “family or household member” as a person’s spouse, former spouse, parents, stepparents, children, stepchildren, brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, grandparents and grandchildren, regardless of whether such persons reside in the same home with the person. In addition, a person’s mother-in-law, father-in-law, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law who reside in the same home with the person. Lastly, any person who has cohabited with the person in the past year, or anyone who has a child in common with the person. We recommend representation by a criminal defense attorney.
