Is Your Client Safe? Safety Planning for Your Client
This fact sheet is part of the Is Your Client Safe? series about relationship violence, which supplements the brochure Is Your Client Safe? A Lawyer's Guide to Relationship Violence. It gives the steps your client can take to start a safety plan and to remain safe. It also tells you where to go for further information and resources.
Because women experience a much greater risk of serious injury or death in violent relationships, this fact sheet refers to your client as "she."
See Abuse & family violence for a complete list of all the fact sheets in this series.
This publication is for people who are comfortable reading and may have some legal knowledge.
