Is the individual being abused a child, incompetent or elderly? Yes, It is a crime
Is the individual being abused a competent adult? No abuse (thou I would recommend a mental evaluation if such abuse is being allowed)
Yes, you probably can't have someone arrested for it but would be referred to as emotional and verbal abuse. Neglect is also a form of abuse
From my brief research it appears that both verbal abuse AND mental abuse are both chargeable offenses under WA law.
What is a potential sign of physical abuse
I believe mental abuse is worse. Physical abuse the marks eventually go away. Mental abuse , those scars may never go away depending on how much abuse there was.
No, Mental abuse and irreconcilable differences are not recognized by SC
It can be considered a form of mental and physical abuse.
You dont say what type of abuser, Although all abuse is wrong in the UK emotional- mental abuse is not considered a crime against an adult,even though it carries all the same risk to the victims mental health and wellbeing,In answer to your question(What happens to abusers) if they are not caught they go on to abuse others and if they are caught they get whats coming to them in terms of a prison sentence. My answer is one word, Karma.
You technically can not charge them for mental abuse. You can only get them charged if a direct threat towards you can be proven.
Such a crime involves the abuse of a corpse, which is disrespectful to the family.
Any abuse is a crime.... So when you hit your grandma or your disabled uncle.... you can go to prison.
Verbal and mental abuse are kind of a cause and affect. When somebody verbally abuses you so badly it eventually, over time, turns into a mental abuse which means you start believing what the abuser says, and less of what you feel and think.
