Making relationship decisions
Support if you continue in the relationship
If you continue in the relationship, there are things that you can do to make your situation better, and to minimise the risk to you and your children.
The 24 hour NSW Domestic Violence Line (1800 65 64 63) can refer you to local support services that can help you. These services can provide emotional support, counselling, safe emergency housing, legal information, and other services.
You can get an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) and stay with your partner. The AVO can protect you from violence and abuse without excluding your partner from the home, if that is what you want. See Apprehended Violence Orders for more information.
Whenever possible, get involved with people and activities outside your home so that you have the support of family and friends.
Develop a positive way of looking at yourself and talking to yourself. This can help counter the negative comments you may get from your partner. Taking the time to do things that you enjoy can also make your situation better.
