One of the best things you can do for yourself and your children if you are in an abusive marriage is to get out and file for divorce. It is a well-settled fact that spousal abuse tends to get worse over time rather than improving.

If you are facing abuse, you should always tell your divorce attorney right away so that they can help you take any necessary steps to protect you.
