In Virginia domestic violence is considered as a form of behavior and way to have control. It is a way to create a power pyramid in a relationship in which one spouse directs the other over physical violence or mental abuse. According to Virginia Law, family violence comprises five main sorts of abusive behaviors which includes:
- Physical violence (slapping, hitting, kicking, pushing, biting or using weapon etc.)
- Emotional abuse (intimidation or humiliation tactics)
- Sexual abuse

According to Virginia Law, Section 19.2-81.3 allows the police officers to arrest without a warrant in case of domestic violence, if there is a possible cause for the suspected crime.
