Intimate Partner Sexual Assault

Intimate Partner Sexual Assault Attorneys

woman with her head in her arms crying against a black background | Intimate Partner Sexual Assault AttorneysIntimate partners actually commit one third of all sexual assaults in the United States. Women who are sexually assaulted by their partners are also usually victims of other forms of domestic violence, including physical and psychological abuse. In fact, when domestic violence is present, the chances of intimate partner sexual assault increases by 70%. Sadly, the majority of intimate partner sexual assault is never reported. Survivors of this type of abuse should consult the intimate partner sexual assault attorneys at the Gold Law Firm for information on their legal rights immediately.

What is Intimate Partner Sexual Assault?

Intimate partner sexual assault is also known as domestic violence, intimate partner rape, marital rape, and spousal rape. It is against the law to engage in sexual activity without someone’s consent – and that includes intimate partners. Any non-consensual sexual contact, either touching or unwanted sexual acts, is considered rape. Even when individuals are married or in a committed relationship, sexual consent must still occur.

Unfortunately, many people erroneously believe that having an intimate relationship with another person means that rape or sexual assault could not ever possibly take place. In fact, until recently it was thought that marital rape or intimate partner sexual assault wasn’t actually possible. As a result, the first marital rape conviction in the United States did not occur until the 1970s.

Sexual Assault is Never Okay

Women and men who are sexually assaulted by their intimate partners may be ashamed, embarrassed, or afraid to speak up. Many are afraid to report the assault because they don’t want to destroy their marriage, upset their children, or incur further abuse. Women are at a greater risk for marital rape or intimate partner sexual assault in the months leading up to divorce or separation. In fact, 1 out of every 4 marital rapes occur just before divorce.

Intimate Partner Sexual Assault Victims Need Support

If you have been a victim of intimate partner sexual assault, it is important to know that the law is on you side. There are ways to stop the cycle of abuse, hold your abuser accountable for their actions and seek justice. In addition to filing a civil lawsuit against your partner, you can file a restraining order in order to protect you and your children from further abuse. With the Gold Law Firm on your side, our caring and compassionate lawyers understand what is at stake, and we will work diligently to protect you and your family during this difficult time.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
