Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: I am divorced. My ex-husband commeted domestic violence when we were married a couple of times. Now, his new wife and him are picking on our 15 year old daughter. His new wife has threatened her with bodily harm as well as verbally abusing her. I don't know if this is child abuse, harassment, or domestic violence. What should I do?

Answer: Domestic violence can be physical, verbal, mental and/or emotional.  If you believe your daughter is being abused by her father and stepmother, you may want to consider report this to DCS.  You may want to speak with an attorney. You can also contact the Arizona Council to End Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence to learn more about verbal abuse.  Contact them at:  800-799-SAFE (7223).  http://www.acesdv.org/
