Understanding Domestic Violence Laws in Virginia

In Virginia, family abuse is regulated by domestic violence laws. These statutes protect individuals from incurring threats and injuries from members of the same family or household.

Family and household members include:

  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Former spouses
  • Grandparents
  • Grandchildren
  • In-laws
  • Siblings
  • Domestic partners

If law enforcement officials have probable cause to believe that an individual has abused a family or household member, they can make an arrest and take that person into custody without a warrant.

When the court suspects that there is an immediate danger of family abuse, it may issue a preliminary restraining order before a hearing is held. Following the hearing, the court may issue a final restraining order for up to two years. Additional consequences could involve one to five years in prison and a fine of up to $2,500.
