If you are injured, go to a hospital emergency room.

Call the police if someone has assaulted you. It is against the law for someone, even a partner or spouse, to beat you.

File an Order of Protection at your county courthouse if your partner or spouse is hurting you and will not leave you alone. This is a request that your abuser be ordered not to abuse, threaten, or harass you.
