Safety in your home

Our two new safety resources on Family Court and Beyond will be helpful for women who are leaving home to escape an abusive partner or trying to keep safe in their family home once the abusive partner no longer lives there.

Protecting your address lists tips on how keep a new home address private, especially if a woman is involved with family court.

Changing the locks looks at ways to keep the abusive ex-partner out of the matrimonial home if a woman continues to live there. This resource looks at what a woman must do to restrict the abuser’s access the home as well as safety issues she will want to think about.

Both new items are in the Keep safe section, which includes tip sheets and safety planning ideas.
