Are you being abused by a partner, including a spouse, roommate, or live-in companion? This abuse is known as domestic violence, and is an extremely serious matter. Not only is this abuse a criminal act, but it makes life extremely difficult for victims, including physical injuries and fear for further harm or even sometimes their own life.
One of the most dangerous times in an abusive relationship is when the abused spouse makes the decision to leave the home, which means this is the most important time to seek protection both physically and legally.
