3. Plan In Advance

Make a plan. Talk to a neighbour, a family member or a friend to let them know what’s going on. Make sure somebody will be readily available to help you in a crisis. Even if you’re not sure you want to leave, you need to make sure you can get to a safe place if you’re at risk.

4. Apply for A Restraining Order

Murray proposes, “Have a professional walk you through the process of getting a protection order. Rules can be different depending on what state or county you live in.” Filing a restraining order might help you feel a little bit safer in a scary state of affairs. Mare sure the order sets clear consequences in the event that your abuser tries to contact you.
