One woman is beaten by her husband or partner every 15 seconds in the United States. This staggering statistic has not gone unnoticed by the North Carolina legislature and thus our courts have developed a mechanism for helping women who may be suffering from domestic violence.
If you and/or your children have suffered acts of domestic violence, you may be eligible to get a Domestic Violence Protective Order against the abuser in accordance with Chapter 50B of the North Carolina General Statues (also called a DVPO or a 50B or a restraining order).
Call the police, if necessary, and when you are safe, contact the domestic violence relief agency in your county. They will give you advice and, if necessary, direct you to a safe shelter.
