We live in an apartment and our neighbors (a couple in their 20's, hopefully not married) get into screaming fights with each other all the time. They slam doors, throw things, and the woman screams like he is pointing a gun at her (but I'm positive he's not). It seems as though she is the instigator in most, if not all, of their fights, and I honestly am more worried that the man is in danger. But they are both huge, so I don't really know what to think about that. I swear every time they use a door they slam it, sometimes hard enough to shake me on the couch and knock stuff off of shelves on the opposite side of our apartment. They wake us up at 1 and 2 in the morning, and when our toddler is up and hears them fight he gets scared. We have already told our landlord and she said she would "take care of it", but nothing's changed. Honestly, I'm horrified of both of them and the one time I saw them was when they were first moving in a few months ago, and they gave me dirty looks for no real reason. We share a front porch and a back patio with them, and I'm worried they'll start harassing us if they find out that we went to the landlord, and we haven't called the cops because I'm not really sure what they could even do, I don't think it's a domestic violence situation. I'm just at a loss...

first of all start a journal keep up with it every time they start stuff or slam stuff write it down and call the cops because it doesn't have to be domestic abuse to disturb the peace and if it's disturbing you then it's disturbing your peace... there is no need for that but I suggest that you ask the cops to call you first and get your report before they talk to the other party for fear of retribution. or call you and meet you at the laundry mat or somewhere other than your front door.
