Domestic assault, also known as domestic violence, occurs when an assault takes place against someone who is related by blood, marriage, a dating relationship, or even a roommate of the defendant. Assaults can be caused by inflicting physical bodily injury to another person, creating physical contact with another person that is extremely offensive or provocative, or causing another person to fear imminent bodily injury. In other words, no actual physical contact has to take place in order for someone to be charged with assault.
