Domestic Violence happens in many forms between two people in an intimate relationship. Physical violence includes kicking, punching, shoving, slapping or any way that hurts your body. Sexual violence includes unwelcome touching, fondling or forced intimacy. Emotional violence includes using coercion or threats and anger to create a controlling and fearful relationship.

The Superior Court has established the Domestic Violence Court in Department 15 of the Stockton Courthouse. One judge handles misdemeanor and felony prosecutions of domestic violence cases and all probation violations for misdemeanor or felony domestic violence defendants.
