I do not have an order for protection against the abuser, and s/he has not been convicted of a crime. Is there anything I can do?
If you do not have an order for protection, and the abuser has not been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, you can still make a plan for your safety. See our Safety Tips page for more information. You can also contact your local domestic violence organization for additional help. You may want to talk to them about whether leaving the area - either long term or for a little while - might help improve your safety. See our IN Places that Help page to find a local domestic violence organization near you.
