Is Disorderly Conduct Considered Domestic Violence in Connecticut?
Often, yes. If the other person involved in the alleged altercation is your spouse, partner, ex, roommate, or close family member, then the courts will consider your case to be “domestic violence” in Connecticut. If so, the judge will issue a protective order against you on that very first court date. It may prevent you from returning to your own home, and may even prohibit all contact with the other person involved – even if you live together or have children together.
