What should be included in the domestic violence complaint?

Fundamentally, the complaint should enumerate the facts and not simply state the result of the domestic violence. The facts of domestic violence are most compelling to the court when the acts occurred recently (or over a period of time) and the facts are stated with as much specificity as possible. When matters beyond domestic violence are also in dispute, it is best to draft the complaint using separate causes of action to avoid the one-year time limit applicable to domestic violence orders.
