If you are a victim of domestic abuse and you are consequentially going through a divorce, you may still be worried about the future well-being of your children, especially if the other parent of your children was your abuser. It is important that you do not keep silent about any abuse that was taking place in your marriage. By reporting the abuse, you will be able to protect your own safety, and it will likely keep your children safe from any potential abuse from their other parent for years to come.
Relationships do not need to be violent in order for them to be dangerous or abusive. If you are feeling scared or controlled in your relationship, it is likely that you are in an abusive relationship. It is important that you recognize your relationship as an unhealthy one and that you take action to safely leave the situation so that you can live the life that you deserve.
