Domestic violence is emotional, physical, sexual, or economic abuse that occurs within a family setting or an intimate relationship and is often used as a means to control the victim. As the victim is under the abuser's control, and living in a continual state of fear, he or she may feel too frightened to report the abuse and in fact, most incidents of this type in California go unreported. It is crucial that you report spousal abuse as the violence usually continues and escalates, putting the victim's life at risk.
Once a person has experienced an incident of domestic violence, he or she should report it to law enforcement immediately.
