How do you leave domestic violence?

For help, contact a women's shelter or a domestic abuse hotline. Make the call while the abuser is not there, or from a friend's residence or another secure area. Prepare an emergency pack with essentials you'll need when you leave, such as additional clothing and keys. Place the bag in a secure location. If you are able to reach family members or friends, ask them if they will help you find a place to stay and give you support during this difficult time.

Domestic violence is a genuine issue in today's culture, and it has major effects. Domestic violence can be classified as one of three categories of abuse or as a mix of physical, psychological, and sexual abuse. It may happen between anybody living in the same family, even brothers.

What to do if you fear domestic violence?

You know it's not right, and you don't have to live like this. Call 911 or your local emergency services if you are afraid of immediate physical assault. Call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at 800-799-7233 if you are not in imminent danger and need to chat or locate somewhere to leave. Your safety is important, and so is finding help.

There are many resources available to you if you are in an abusive relationship. You may want to consider leaving your partner if they are violent toward you. If they show any sign of hurting themselves, take them to the hospital. Some ways to protect yourself while staying with an abuser include:

Lock your door. Set a good example by locking your own door when you go out. This will let others know that you cannot be trusted alone and should not be left by yourself.

Hide your money and valuables. An abusive person will look for things to steal, so keep all your cash, credit cards, social security number, etc. hidden from view.

Move out. If you are in an unsafe situation then it's time to get out. Find a friend or family member who will allow you to stay with them until you can find another place to live. Do not return to your ex-husband/wife even if they seem to have changed their behavior toward you.

File for divorce.

When should you intervene in a domestic violence situation?

Intervening in domestic violence situations can be risky, especially if the abuser is armed (e.g., with a pistol) and drunk by alcohol or drugs. If you are unable to obtain assistance through the local shelter or police, bring another friend or family member with you while responding to the victim/call survivor's in person. Consider using a safe phone call service such as SafeTel where you can communicate privately via text message or Internet chat.

It is important to understand that most domestic violence victims fear their abuser and often do not want help. It is your responsibility as a concerned citizen to try to change this mindset by showing them that they are not alone and that there is hope for a positive outcome. Even if the victim refuses your help, take notes about what happened and report it to authorities so they can investigate the incident.

The best time to intervene in a domestic violence situation is immediately after it has occurred. The abuser may become angry or upset if he discovers that you have seen him abuse his partner and might try to hurt you too. Showing yourself to be a threat allows the victim to seek help from others who will protect her.

If you are unable to stop the violence right away, then call the police and describe the situation accurately. They will know how to respond and may be able to assist even if you are not present at the scene.

Finally, remember that you are not responsible for fixing your partner.
