Signs of domestic violence:
Does your partner put you downs or act in ways that scare you?
Are you physically assaulted or threaten to be assaulted?
Control what you do, who you see or talk to, or where you go?
Stop you from seeing your friends or family members?
Take your money or paycheck, make you ask for money, or refuse to give you money?
Make all of the decisions?
Tell you that you’re a bad parent or threaten to take away or hurt your children?
Threaten to commit suicide?
Prevent you from working or going to school?
Act like the abuse is NO big deal or is your fault, or even deny doing it?
Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?
If you answered yes, to any of these questions you may want to speak with a victim advocate to explore options.
