Checklist for Domestic Violence– Seattle Divorce Attorney

By Allen Glass

Watch out if your partner

  • Is so crazy about you he wants to settle in as soon as you meet.
  • Is incredibly jealous.  Your partner should not be accusing you of flirting with everyone you encounter.
  • You are always tired because he keeps you up at night.
  • You’re always explaining to people “I can’t go.”
  • Your anxiety soars if you’re just a few minutes late — you know how upset he’ll be.

  •  Things are always your fault.
  • You get a lot of apology emails or make-up gifts.
  • You find you don’t do anything without him or her.



Advance Signs of Trouble:

  • You find out your partner had a violent relationship with a former partner.
  • Your partner stalks you — at work, online, with GPS in your car.
  • Your partner has been physically violent in the past, to people or animals.

  • Your friend starts saying s/he can’t come to things you invite her to because of the partner.
  • Your friend is always on-edge about returning the partner’s messages immediately or being late to meet the partner.
  • Your friend’s bruises or scratches can’t be explained or tells you they were caused by an accident.
  • Your friend stops doing things s/he loved before meeting the partner — hobbies, shopping, school, even working.
