If my partner called me bad names few times, is it emotional domestic violence?

Des Moines, IA |

Normally we do not fight. But when we do argue, she says things she shouldn't say and I get mad and I say things back I shouldn't. If my partner called me bad names few times, is it domestic violence emotionally?

  1. Not necessarily. I'm licensed in California although the standard in this state is reasonable fear for your safety or some kind of harm. What exactly is this person saying? My suggestion: consult with a lawyer licensed in your state as to whether you have a case.
