Make a plan for what you will do the next time he assaults you:

Decide NOW where you will go and how you’ll get there the next time he becomes violent. Do this even if you really don’t think there will be a next time.

  • Leave some money, an extra set of car keys and extra clothes at a neighbor’s or with some you trust.
  • Keep important documents (birth certificates, medical records, marriage license, financial records, etc.) hidden near an exit or at a neighbor’s or friend’s house.
  • Develop a code word with your children, neighbors and friends that lets them know you need to get out now.
  • Provide your children’s teachers and school principal with enough information about your situation to respond supportively. Ask them not to release the children to their father should you report to them that you are about to leave the home.
  • Try to avoid arguments in the bathroom, garage, kitchen, near weapons or near other places where there are sharp or heavy objects.
  • If he seems to be "building up" and you can’t leave safely, keep your back towards an open space, not a corner.
  • If you leave, always try to take your children with you.
  • Keep any evidence of physical abuse (ripped clothing, photographs of bruises and injuries, etc.).
  • Tell someone you know and trust what is happening to you so that if you need to get out of your home in a hurry, you will have someone you can turn to.
  • If you are injured go to the hospital emergency room or doctor and tell them what happened to you.
