Do you know a woman who is being abused? A legal rights handbook
What will happen to the children?
The police have a duty to report any concerns about the children's safety to a Children's Aid Society (CAS). This can include a child who has witnessed domestic violence, even if the child was not physically harmed and there were no criminal charges brought.
A CAS worker might visit your home. CAS staff are trained to work with women in abusive relationships. If your worker is not helpful, ask to speak to a supervisor.
