Not all criminal instances of domestic violence will involve physical conflict, such as sexual battery or spousal abuse. Many people find themselves charged with domestic violence due to alleged verbal assault, also called verbal abuse.
It can be particularly difficult to defend oneself from verbal assault charges due to the fact that physical evidence, like an audio recording of the alleged crime, is rarely present.

Legal Definition of Verbal Assault
Domestic violence occurs when a family member, partner, or household member intentionally tries to harm another, either mentally or physically. Legally defined, verbal assault is a form of domestic violence that occurs if such an individual intentionally tries to damage the mental or emotional wellbeing of someone through their words, spoken or written.
Examples of behavior that can constitute verbal assault includes:
- Threats of violence that are not followed by physical action
- Belittling or embarrassing comments
- Attempts to isolate someone from friends or family
- Coercing someone for a benefit, or for their disadvantage
Is verbal assault a crime? Unless the verbal assault was extreme and lasted a considerable duration, a court or police officer might not find that one instance of verbal assault is enough to warrant charges. Instead, most verbal abuse cases involve repeated and frequent occurrences.
