As much as two-thirds of domestic violence cases go unreported. Victims often sustain so much physical, psychological, sexual, and emotional abuse that reaching out for aid seems impossible. Abusers will often try to degrade their victim’s sense of self-worth, making them feel powerless to seek help.
Some mistakenly believe sexual assault and rape cannot happen within the context of a marriage. This is not true. Spousal rape is indeed a crime. Sexual activity always requires mutual consent, whether or not the people involved are married.
For victims of domestic violence, restraining orders are legal documents used to protect them from their abusers. While the exact restrictions of a restraining order can vary from case to case, they can, and often do, forbid an abuser from coming within a certain distance of the victim. Restraining orders can also make it illegal for abusers to attempt any contact by phone, mail, or other means.
While restraining orders are not usually permanent, they can be an effective remedy to keep abusers away while victims sort out what legal action to pursue to help get their lives back to normal.
