Domestic Violence – The Critical Information to Get Help and Protection
Domestic violence is a frequent topic in family law matters because that violence can be the cause, or the result, of a breakdown in a relationship. When it occurs, it can profoundly affect all the members of the family – all the adults and the children.
This edition of the podcast focuses on the critical things that people who have violence in their relationship must know. It discusses:
– getting help
– the response by authorities – both police and children’s aid societies
– restraining orders
– family mediation where there is domestic violence, and –
– how to get help from a family lawyer, even if your partner is controlling all the money.
This episode will be of great assistance to people in violent relationships and it will complement the information available from shelters, domestic abuse counsellors, therapists, distress lines, the police, and other agencies that are available to assist people in fleeing domestic violence to protect themselves and their children.
