Learn how to collect and present evidence of abuse
From working with survivors of domestic abuse, we’ve realised that women may often not have access to legal aid/help because they are either very depressed or it’s too difficult for them to think their way around the legal jargon. Sometimes, they may not be able to physically approach a lawyer and increasingly, there may be a lack of legal aid or counsel may be too expensive. Irrespective of whether someone wants to take legal action (criminal, divorce, child custody or asylum) – collecting and presenting evidence is critical.
It doesn’t matter where you are based or what kind of abuse you’re facing – give this guide a chance. It will help you collect and present evidence in such a way that even if you do not want to pursue a legal case, it’ll be useful for your own record.
