How Florida Law Defines Domestic Violence
Domestic violence in Florida can include crimes such as assault, battery, sexual assault, stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any other criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death when it is committed by a family member or household member. These laws apply to crimes committed by your spouse, former spouse, a person related to you by blood or marriage, someone who is living you or who lived with you as a family in the past, or the other parent of your children, regardless of whether you ever lived together or not.
