What Is Considered Domestic Violence in Georgia?

According to Georgia domestic violence laws O.C.G.A. 19-13-1, family or domestic violence encompasses any abusive actions directed at a spouse, children, romantic partner, relatives, or other residents in the same household. 

Abusive actions can include assault, battery, stalking, criminal damage to property, unlawful restrain, criminal trespass, or felony. Furthermore, domestic violence can encompass sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse.

Who Is Eligible to get a Protective Order?

You could be able to file for a protective order if you and/or your minor child have experienced an act of oppression by the following:

  • Your spouse or an ex-spouse;
  • Your parent, foster parent, or step-parent;
  • Your child, foster child, or step-child;
  • Someone with whom you have a child with; or
  • Any person who resides or has resided in the same household as you

What Is a Temporary Protective Order?

A temporary protective order (TPO) restrains the accused individual from engaging in behaviors such as harassment, stalking, or threatening the physical safety of the person who filed for the order. 

These orders can be granted on the same day they are requested, ensuring immediate removal of the offending party from the shared residence. Apart from safeguarding the petitioner, TPOs can also make provisions for matters such as child support and child custody. It's worth noting that the issuance of a protective order can significantly impact the financial situation of the party being removed from the home.

What Are the Penalties for Domestic Violence?

If convicted, the repercussions of a domestic violence offense can be severe. Beyond imprisonment and monetary penalties, the aftermath may involve a tarnished reputation, challenges in securing career prospects, loss of child custody, and additional hardships. 

Furthermore, even allegations can lead to these indirect repercussions. As such, it is crucial to work with an experienced domestic violence attorney.
