Is This Happening in Your Relationship?

Domestic violence is when one person tries to control another. It is a cycle which repeats itself.

The Cycle of Domestic Violence

Once a violent act takes place in a relationship, the violence almost always reoccurs. In fact, it tends to get more severe. In the event of physical abuse:

  • Get medical attention for any injuries.
  • Save anything that proves your side of the story(evidence).
  • Have someone take photographs of your injuries and any damage.
  • Give your child's teachers a copy of the Order of Protection.
