Abusive Relationships

There are a number of ways the law can assist someone in an abusive relationship. Relationship violence is a complex, serious social problem. It affects not only the victims, but their families, friends and communities. And the personal, social and economic costs cannot be underestimated when it comes to things like physical and emotional injury, substance and alcohol abuse, lost productivity, medical expenses and criminal justice costs.

Abusive Behaviours

Abusive behaviour does not always involve physical violence. Recognizing abusive behaviour and patterns can help victims find the help and support they need.

Safety Orders

This section discusses laws designed to address safety concerns for individuals dealing with abuse or violence in a relationship.

Leaving an Abusive Relationship

Leaving a relationship and starting out on one's own is difficult enough. When that decision must be made in the midst of the trauma of abuse, it can be even more difficult.

Abusive Relationships & Family Law

When a relationship has involved violence or abuse it's important for individuals to understand their rights. Certain aspects of family law may be of particular interest.

PLEA can provide you with information to help you understand many legal matters you, a family member or friend may be facing.
