What is dating violence?

Dating violence in a Title IX case can encompass various forms. As an accused student, it's unfortunate that a school can cast a wide net.

For example, dating violence could include what may seem obvious. For example, assaulting somebody, punching them, slapping them, but dating violence can also encompass other forms. For example, emotional or verbal or psychological abuse. Dating violence is a all encompassing term and an accused student has to be very mindful because if an accused student is found responsible for dating violence, the sanctions are generally more severe at a minimum suspension, but expulsion say especially if there's aggravating factors. An experienced attorney can help guide you through the process and best gauge as to how to respond to the case.
