Following the new Domestic Abuse Act 2021, there is now a legal definition of abuse which can now be helpful in very difficult circumstances.
It can include, but is not limited to, the following:
– Coercive control (a pattern of intimidation, degradation, isolation and control with the use or threat of physical or sexual violence)
– Violent or threatening behaviour
– Psychological and/or emotional abuse
– Physical or sexual abuse
– Financial or economic abuse
– Harassment and stalking
– Online or digital abuse
