Domestic violence is not considered a separate charge from something like assault, aggravated assault or battery in Pennsylvania. Instead, there are merely additional considerations when the call is made regarding a domestic violence situation. In Pennsylvania, when an alleged victim calls the police and makes an allegation that a member of his or her household has committed a violent act against them, the police that respond are required to make an arrest. Then, it is up to the prosecutor whether or not to press charges. The victim in the situation cannot decide to drop charges.
