Leaving an Abusive Relationship

The Schenk Podolsky Attorney’s at Law team understands how difficult it can be when someone who loves us abuses both emotionally as well physically because they have some kind offasley attitude towards their loved ones, but these problems don’t just go away by themselves. They need professional intervention from people with experience such as ourselves at Schenk Podolsky Attorneys at Law. 

Domestic violence is a terrible thing, and it’s important to take precautions for your own safety as well as that of any children in an abusive household. You can find help by calling the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799 SAFE (7233) or texting “start” TO 88788; they will provide you with information on how best to escape from this situation without risking anything along the way!

When you’re deciding to leave a place, it’s best not do so without thinking about where your next destination will be and what essentials are necessary for the new location. Make sure that any social security cards or birth certificates are gathered as well as passports if needed; these may become important during an emergency situation such as natural disaster relief efforts on hand afterward too! Be prepared with documenting every incident involving yourself or the safety of your loved ones while getting out of state because those things don’t always go unnoticed by those left behind who want nothing but peace following their departure. 

The attorneys at Schenk Podolsky are available to help you get a protective order quickly. They will make sure the abuser stays away from your location, such as by staying in another room or leaving temporarily until it is time for them to go back home again- but this might not always work out depending on how serious an abuse situation was between two individuals before getting started with dating/sleeping together which led up towards violence later downstream. 

After you leave, if your abuser still has an ongoing restraining order against them and is in process of going to court. Make sure that he cannot contact any other person besides a lawyer or legal officials during this time period because it could land him jail time for violating his/her current probation sentence on file at the local police department where they reside. It’s also important not just what we do but when as well – so change all locks immediately after getting rid of unwanted visitors like dogs; don’t go anywhere alone unless absolutely necessary (and always have another set ready), avoid taking long walks outside especially late. 

The decision of where and when you meet your children depends on the legal custody that has been set by a court. If there is still an order preventing contact, then try to find public places near police stations or restaurants so they can visit with their other parent without worrying about safety concerns firsthand while also remaining aware if anything happens during these times alone outside what would typically occur in everyday life circumstances (such as being approached by someone).

If you believe there is evidence that your children might be in danger during their visitation with the other parent, contact Schenk Podolsky Attorneys at Law at (480) 757-5000.
