Make A Plan And Stay Safe

Leaving an abusive relationship can be a daunting and dangerous task for survivors. On average, it takes up to seven attempts for a survivor to successfully leave their abuser for good. Alarmingly, the most dangerous time for domestic violence victims is during the process of leaving or immediately after. Your safety is our priority. If you are taking steps to leave an abusive relationship and are experiencing ANY of the following, please contact our legal advocates as soon as it is safe for you to do so.

Safety Planning For Survivors

The primary goal of the Cherokee Family Violence Center (CFVC) is to assist you in developing a plan to keep you and your family safe. Our advocates are available at any time to help you create an individualized safety plan, but the following information is designed to offer a starting point for you, on your own time. This information is designed to prompt you to consider different situations that may arise, so you can better prepare for safety in a crisis.

It is common for survivors who have experienced abuse in their relationship to find themselves in varied states of togetherness or separation with their partner over time. Because of that, you must consider how your safety plan is impacted, relative to the level of contact you have with your partner.
