Domestic violence and family violence are often seen as having this interchangeable function, though they are quite different.

Domestic abuse is any abuse that comes amongst people in domestic relations; for example, partners, spouses, and so on.

Family violence is a more general term that includes domestic violence and, in addition, any violence between family members, based on parents, children or siblings.
