Warning Signs of Domestic Violence

Does your partner:

  • Insult, demean, or embarass you with put-downs?

  • Control what you do, who you talk to, or where you go?

  • Look at you or act in ways that scare you?

  • Stop you from seeing or talking to friends and family?

  • Control all of the money in the relationship? Take your money or Social Security check, make you ask for money, or refuse to give you money? 

  • Push you, slap you, choke you, or hit you?

  • Make all of the decisions without your input of consideration of your needs?

  • Tell you that you're a bad parent, or threaten to take away your children?

  • Act as if the abuse is no big deal, your fault, or deny that it is happening at all?

  • Destroy your property or threaten to kill your pets?

  • Intimidate you with guns, knives, or other weapons?

  • Attempt to force you to drop criminal charges?

  • Threaten to commit suicide or threaten to kill you?
