October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Posted by Kristy, Mary's House of Hope Board President on October 2, 2012 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (1)

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we are going to try and post something in our blog at least once a day to raise awareness about Domestic Violence.  If anyone has any questions, please feel free to make a post and we will try to answer the best we can.

For today, we would just like to give a definition of Domestic Violence.  Domestic Violence is not just physical abuse, although physical is one of the most known. There is emotional, psycological, sexual and finacial abuse. Domestic violence is not just between a husband and a wife. They could be married, not married, heterosexual, gay, or lesbian; living together, seperated or just dating. Anyone can be a victim! Victims can be any age, race, sex, culture, religion, education employment or maritial status.

 

1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men suffers physical or emotional violence at the hands of an intimate partner.

Missouri Passes Domestic Violence Law Changes

Posted by Vicki - Mary's Sister-In-Law on May 18, 2011 at 1:35 PM Comments comments (0)

The Associated Press - Posted on May 5, 2011

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri lawmakers gave final approval Thursday to what supporters have called the first overhaul of the state's domestic violence laws in four decades.

Many of the bill's changes follow suggestions from a specially created domestic violence task force organized by the attorney general's office. The House passed the bill 138-0 on Thursday after senators last month approved the measure 33-0. The domestic violence legislation now goes to Gov. Jay Nixon.

Among the provisions in the legislation are changes to how Missouri handles orders of protection. People seeking a protection order would not be charged filing fees when asking courts to enforce protection orders. If the order is withdrawn, judges would be allowed to determine whether the person did so voluntarily. Judges also would be allowed to customize the terms of protection orders according to the situation.

Besides protection orders, the legislation also would remove an expiration date for a program created in 2007 that gives victims of sexual assault, rape, stalking and domestic violence an alternative mailing address. The intent of that program is to prevent abusers from tacking down victims through mail or public documents. Mail is sent to the secretary of state's office under the alternative address and then forwarded to the person's home. The alternative address can be used on government documents and public filings.

Domestic violence bill is SB320
