What is Domestic Violence?
Abuse comes in many forms. Are you concerned about your relationship? Are you ever afraid of your partner? Does your partner tell you what to do and who to see? Has your partner ever threatened to harm you? Has your partner ever pushed or hit you, thrown things at you or forced you to have sex? Does your partner threaten to have you deported? You are not alone.
If you are being abused, you may feel frightened, hurt, confused, disappointed, angry, ashamed or hopeless. Your partner might make it worse by blaming you. But no one deserves to be abused or threatened. You cannot stop your partner’s abuse, but you can find help.
