Oklahoma state law defines domestic violence as “any act of physical harm, or the threat of imminent physical harm which is committed by an adult, emancipated minor, or minor age thirteen (13) years or older against another adult, emancipated minor or minor child who are family or household members or who are or were in a dating relationship.” The perpetrator or victim of domestic violence may be a parent; child; spouse; ex-spouse; parents with a child in common, even if the two were never married; current or former dating partners or intimate partners; roommates; and other family members or household members.
These types of allegations can be untruthful and being used by a spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend or family member as a way to punish a person or to take custody of minor children.
