Is verbal abuse considered domestic violence?

Verbal abuse, such as yelling, threats, name-calling, humiliation, etc. can be considered a form of domestic violence, and should never have to be tolerated by a spouse or living partner. Domestic violence is certainly grounds for filing for divorce. In many cases, when a victim of domestic abuse files for divorce, he or she is also able to obtain a restraining order against the abusive partner for added legal protection.
