What is Considered Domestic Violence?

In the state of Washington, domestic violence is defined as any assault, bodily injury, physical harm, or even just the infliction of fear of such actions on a member of one’s family or household. No injury or physical evidence is required for conviction.

Family and household members can include many types of parties, such as a blood relative, a relative by marriage, a current/former spouse or domestic partner, a current/former boyfriend or girlfriend, or someone who shares a child with the accused party.
