Getting out of an abusive relationship – National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Help of Door County is reaching out to victims of domestic abuse that may feel there is no place to turn. Milly Gonzales, executive director of Help of Door County, says deciding to remove oneself from an abusive relationship can be challenging for those victimized, especially when children are involved. Gonzales advises victims not to hesitate to get out of an abusive situation immediately.



Gonzales 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. She says family court will ultimately determine custody afterward. Still, it is vital 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.
