When is assault and/or battery considered domestic violence in Florida?
Answer: It’s considered domestic violence when a couple lives together as a family. So it can be male/male living together as a family, female/female living together as a family or male/female living together as a family. Or it could be multiple people living together as a family, obviously if there were cousins or other extended family. If there’s no living together, then it could be if there was any kind of relation by blood that could make it domestic violence, if there’s just a family relation, or if there is a child in common. So let’s say boyfriend and girlfriend never actually lived together but they had a child together, that would make it domestic violence.
