This is the part where you put your safety plan and your newfound legal knowledge into action.
We urge you to include us in this part of the process, as we can introduce you to resources that will assure your family’s safety during and after your departure from the abuser. For example, we can help you obtain a temporary restraining order. A restraining order can help you by ordering the restrained person to:
- Not contact or go near you, your children, other relatives, or others who live with you
- Not have a gun
- Move out of your home
- Follow child custody and visitation orders
- Pay child and spousal/partner support
- Stay away from your pet(s)
