Frequently Asked Questions

What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence is a pattern of controlling behavior that can include physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse, or financial abuse (using money and financial tools to exert control). Some abusers are able to exert complete control over a survivor’s every action without ever using violence or only using subtle threats of violence.

What resources are available to domestic violence survivors?

Survivors have many options, from obtaining a restraining order and custody orders, to staying in a shelter, exploring options through a support group, making an anonymous call to a local domestic violence shelter, or calling the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233. There are hundreds of local shelters across the United States that provide safety, counseling, legal help, and other resources for survivors and their children.
