The tragic nature of an abusive relationship is only increased when victims allow themselves and their children to stay in the abusive situation. Although the situation is frightening for victims, and it takes a great deal of courage to seek legal help to get out of it, the best thing you can do for you and for your children is to get the help you need as quickly as possible.

With smart legal decisions, you can get the protection you need in the immediate short term and in the long-term.
