Post-Separation Conjugal Violence
Separation is a particularly critical time for a woman who is a victim of conjugal violence. Their ex-partner does not always accept that she has left and may be prepared to do anything to continue to exert control over her. The violence often continues after the separation and, in some cases, worsens.
Risks of serious injury or homicide are not insignificant after a separation. If you fear for your safety, don’t hesitate to call the police or SOS violence conjugale.
You can also apply for a restraining order from the court to prevent your partner from coming near you.
