Overview of Federal Laws About Domestic Violence

Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act in 1994. Termed VAWA, the act recognizes that domestic violence is a national crisis and that the federal agency should help the local law enforcement agencies in trying to curb this crime. The VAWA was amended in 1996, and the Congress introduced the Gun Control Act in the same year. According to the Gun Control Act, people accused of domestic violence are not allowed to legally own a gun.

Victims of domestic abuse receive extra protection. This includes a national domestic help hotline and changed immigration laws that will allow a victimized spouse to apply for citizenship in the country.

Federal laws in the United States of America are majorly directed towards acts of violence directed towards people in intimate relationships. According to federal law, an intimate partner is a current spouse, a former spouse, A person who is the parent of your child, and a person who has in the past or currently cohabits with you.
