The label "domestic violence" refers to a wide range of crimes — from battery, assault and abuse to harassment and stalking, and may involve relationships other than that of husband and wife, including relationships with former spouses, someone related by blood or marriage, roommates, and persons with whom you have children.

In Tennessee, domestic violence is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $2,500 and 11 months and 29 days in jail. Also, you face the loss of your right to own or carry a weapon for life, loss of child visitation rights if you are divorced and deportation if your immigration status is uncertain.
