subsister aux violences conjugales

il faut partir des conseils:
BRISER LE SILENCE
Comment échapper aux violences de l’autre, faire cesser l’intolérable ? Partir, se cacher, tout laisser, abandonner un travail, des amis, un foyer, disparaître ? Dans une situation de danger, la victime a le droit de partir et de se réfugier dans l’endroit de son choix avec ses enfants.
Elle peut si elle le souhaite signaler son départ au service de gendarmerie ou de police.

PRÉPARER UN DEPART
Quand cela est possible, avant de partir, certains documents ou copies peuvent être déposés en lieu sûr (chez un avocat ou dans une association spécialisée) : les papiers officiels (livret de famille, passeport, carte d’identité, carte de séjour,...), les documents importants (carnet de santé, carte de sécurité sociale, carnets scolaires, carte grise, bulletins de salaire, diplômes, chéquiers, carte bancaire, avis d’imposition, titre de propriété, factures, quittance de loyer, liste des biens personnels...), les éléments de preuve (certificats médicaux, témoignages, photos, récépissé de dépôt de plainte, numéro d’enregistrement de déclaration de main courante, ordonnance de décisions judiciaires).

IMAGINER UN SCENARIO DE PROTECTION
Si un épisode violent se prépare, comment se protéger, à qui faire appel, où se réfugier ? Pour faire face à une situation de danger, il est important de s’y préparer :
> Noter et apprendre par cœur les numéros de téléphone importants (services de police, permanence téléphonique pour femmes victimes de violence conjugale locale ou nationale,autre soutien).

> Identifier les lieux ou personnes qui peuvent venir en aide en cas d’urgence.

> Convenir d’un code de communication avec une personne proche (qui peut elle-même avertir les services de police).

> Informer les enfants sur la conduite à tenir.

> Préparer un sac de départ, à mettre si possible, en lieu sûr (documents importants, somme d’argent, linge, double des clés de maison, voiture).

Les violences subies par la victime ont des conséquences sur sa santé (traces de coups, traumatismes physique ou psychologique, blessures). Il est important de les faire constater par un médecin qui produira un certificat médical accompagné, selon la gravité des faits, d’une incapacité totale de travail que la victime exerce ou non une activité professionnelle, si nécessaire, des photos des blessures peuvent être jointes à ce constat.

Le certificat médical servira d’élément de preuve, pour les procédures judiciaires que la victime pourra être amené à engager ultérieurement (poursuites pénales, procédures civiles (divorce, séparation, indemnisation).

RASSEMBLER DES TÉMOIGNAGES
Les violences conjugales se déroulent majoritairement dans le secret du privé, cependant des parents, amis, voisins, collègues peuvent avoir été témoins d’épisodes violents ou constaté les conséquences d’une situation de violence subie par la victime. Ces derniers peuvent témoigner de ce qu’ils ont vu, entendu ou constaté. Les témoignages par écrit doivent être datés, signés et accompagnés d’une photocopie de la pièce d’identité du témoin

Survive Domestic Violence

One must give this advice:

BREAK THE SILENCE
How does one escape the violences of another, stop the intolerable? To depart, to hide, to leave everything behind, to abandon a job, friends, a home, to disappear? In a situation of danger, the victim has the right to leave and to take refuge in the place of her choice with her children. She can if she desires, signal her depart to the police.

PREPARE A DEPARTURE

When this is possible, before leaving, certain documents or copies can be dropped off in a safe place (at a lawyer's office or at a specialized association):
official papers (family record book, passport, identity card, residence permit...),
important documents (child health booklet, social security cards, school notebooks, car registration, payslips, diplomas, checkbooks, bank card, tax assessment, title deed, bills, rent receipt, list of personal goods...),
the elements of proof (medical certificates, testimonies, photos, receipt of filed complaint, [numero d'enregistrement de declaration de main courante], ruling of judicial decisions.

IMAGINE A SCENARIO OF PROTECTION
If a violent episode is rumbling, how does one protect oneself, who does one call, where does one take refuge? In order to face a situation of danger, it is important to be prepared:

-Write down and learn by heart important telephone numbers (police services, hotline for female victims of local or national domestic violence, other support.)

-To identify the places or people who can come and assist in case of urgency.

-Agree to a code of communication with a close person who can inform the police.

-To inform the children how to behave.

-To prepare a departure bag, to put if possible in a safe place (important documents, sum of money, laundry, duplicates of house keys, car keys)

The violence suffered by the victim has consequences on her health (signs of blows, physical or psychological traumatism, injuries.) It is important to be assessed by a doctor who will produce a medical certificate, according to the gravity of facts, and of a total incapacity to work or not. If necessary, photos of injuries can be attached to this report.

The medical certificate will serve as proof for the judiciary procedures that the victim can be brought to engage later on: criminal pursuits, or civil procedures (divorce, separation, compensation).

GATHER THE TESTIMONIES
For the most part, domestic violence takes place in private; however parents, friends, neighbors, and colleagues, can be witnesses to violent episodes or notice the consequences of a violent situation suffered by the victim. They can testify what they have seen, heard, or noticed. The written testimonies must be dated, signed, and accompanied with a photocopy of the witnesses' piece of identity.
