From the outside, most Florida homes appear to be places where a family can gather to enjoy each other's company, raise a family and go about their daily lives; however, looks can be deceiving. The fact that all appears to be well on the outside does not necessarily mean that all is well on the inside. Recently, a Florida woman was shot to death inside her home. Police reports indicate that they believe it is the result of domestic violence.
Victims of domestic violence often do not know where to turn in order to receive the assistance they need. Furthermore, some victims of domestic violence feel trapped in their situation due to financial concerns or other limitations. In addition to seeking refuge if necessary, guidance in filing restraining orders, possibly beginning divorce proceedings and other concerns, may be needed. It is important for victims of domestic violence to take the necessary steps to change their situation.
