What is domestic violence? Domestic violence is one of the most frequently charged crimes in Nevada. To prove a person guilty of battery domestic violence, the government must show that the defendant inflicted unlawful physical force against another person such as a family member, spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend or housemate.
