5 Steps for Leaving an Abusive Relationship

divorce attorney1. Acknowledge the Situation

It’s natural to minimize or even ignore abuse, but at some point you have to address it. The first step to leaving an abusive partner is acknowledging the existence of abuse in the first place.

2. Consider Your Options

Do you have friends or family in the area who can take you in? Do you have access to funds from a bank account that you do not share with your partner? If you don’t have either of these, there are programs in the state of California that can help.

3. Cover Your Tracks

When you research local programs, make sure you use a safe computer. If your partner has access to it, check for a key logger first, and clear your browser history when you are done.

4. Look Inward

If this is your first abusive relationship, you may have just found yourself in a bad situation. However, look inward if you notice a pattern and determine why you often take part in dysfunctional relationships.

5. Turn to Professionals

If you are leaving a spouse, you will need a divorce attorney. You should also consider talking to a therapist about any underlying issues that might have contributed to the dysfunction in your relationship.
