In 2010, almost 1,100 individuals under the age of 21 filed family offense petitions in New York State Family Courts under the expanded definition of “intimate relationship,” a 22% increase from 2009.
This statistic is taken from the 2010 New York State Domestic Violence Dashboard, available at the end of July at the Dashboard page of the OPDV website.
