Getting out of an abusive relationship

Help of Door County is reaching out to victims of domestic abuse that may feel there is no place to turn.  Steve Vickman, executive director of Help of Door County, says making the decision to remove oneself from an abusive relationship can be a tough one for those victimized, especially when children are involved.  Vickman advises victims to not hesitate to get out of an abusive situation immediately.



Vickman says victims will need to consult an attorney, but that Help of Door County advocates are available 24/7 to help with safety plans and moving forward.  He says family court will ultimately determine custody afterward, but it is important to contact Help of Door County who can assist in getting family restraining orders to deal with threats.  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
