For the purpose of the law, the definition of abuse is broad and often requires clarification when obtaining a protective order. Iowa law states that domestic abuse can be classified as:

  • Physical contact that injures or is meant to injure
  • Threatening action with a weapon
  • Unwanted sexual activity
  • Threats of violence along with the ability to carry out the threat

Our Iowa domestic abuse attorneys cover what is classified as a protective order as well as the specific terms for abuse so that you are aware of your options when filing for an order of protection.
