A Victim Of Domestic Violence?

Domestic Violence law in India can be governed by an Act of Parliament called the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act of 2006. It provides a wide range of rights to domestic violence victims.

The right to residence is explicitly provided for by domestic violence law. You have the right to reside in the house shared by your spouse, regardless of title or interest. Alternate accommodation is also permitted by the DV Act. Law has made it mandatory for husbands to provide accommodation to their wives.

Domestic violence cases can be initiated by filing a complaint that details all the events of domestic abuse before the Court of magistrate. In most cases, such a complaint is accompanied by an interim request. The complaint’s magistrate is authorized to issue summons via a protection officer or local police station.
