    What Constitutes an Aggravated Domestic Battery Charge?

    In Illinois, Domestic Battery is when you physically abuse or make physical contact with a family member. While spouses, former spouses, parents, children and stepchildren are considered family members. So are current boyfriends, girlfriends, ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend, ex-husband or ex-wife. In other words, they DO NOT have to live with you to be recognized as a “family member.” An aggravated domestic battery charge goes beyond the traditional slap, hit, hair pulling, biting, thrown objects and weapon waving. If great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement has occurred to a “family member”, you can be charged with Aggravated Domestic Battery.
