Prosecuting Your Abuser

 

Many survivors may feel a need to confront their abuser and possibly even want to take them to court in order to seek some closure or recompense for the damage done.

Unfortunately most abusers when confronted deny their behaviour and accuse the victim/survivor of lying. This can have a detrimental effect on the survivor and preparation to deal with the effects of this is essential.

Most court-cases of abuse are historical claims and as such the perpetrator is often found not-guilty due to lack of evidence and also possibly the reluctance of people to believe abuse takes place.

There are advocacy organisations available which may be of help and these exist for survivors/victims of child abuse, domestic violence and professional abuse.

Many victims/survivors do take their abusers to court and get the results they want, You can still take your abuser to court years after the event/s took place and still get a conviction.
