Types of Domestic Abuse under Illinois Law

Domestic abuse knows no economic bounds and the Illinois State Police report that it occurs in all classes, races, and at every level of income and education. Domestic violence is a crime that occurs when any person who is either a family or "household" member interferes with the personal liberty of another through violence, harassment, or threats.

Domestic violence can include the following types of abuse:

  • Physical abuse, including pushing or hitting
  • Sexual abuse, including rape or unwanted sexual contact
  • Harassment, including repeated disturbances at your place of work or repeated telephone calls
  • Emotional abuse, such as abusive language or being made to watch the abuse of another
  • Forcing you to do something you do not want to do or denying you essential medical services

Further, domestic violence includes violence perpetrated against you by a former domestic partner, ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, or caretaker of a disabled person. That person does not need to be living in your household in order to be held accountable for domestic abuse.

Working Quickly to Advocate for Orders of Protection

Victims of domestic violence are not without legal recourse. If you or a member of your family has suffered from any type of domestic violence, be sure to seek an order of protection from an Illinois court.

Orders of protection may:

  • Order the abuser out of the home
  • Order the abuser to stay away from you, your family, your work, or your school
  • Grant you temporary custody of all shared children and prohibit abuser visitation
  • Require the abuser to attend counseling
  • Require the abuser to turn over any firearms or weapons
