If you are facing domestic abuse in a marriage, it is important to create a safety plan and safely leave the marriage as soon as possible. Your first stop in seeking help is the police. Please consider filing for a restraining order to keep your partner at a distance from you. Visit with a physician and a therapist to treat the physical and emotional components of domestic violence. As healing continues, retain a family law attorney to walk you through the steps of seeking a divorce from your abuser.
