FV is Family Violence. FVA is Family Violence Act. DV is Domestic Violence. All of these are the same add-on description for the crime of committing a Battery against someone who lived with the defendant, was married to the defendant, or in limited circumstances, worked with the person. The designation is used to increase the available punishment, and a conviction has severe consequences.
