As movement restrictions rise, aimed to stop the spread of COVID-19 may be making violence   in homes more frequent, more severe, and more dangerous. Limiting movement has forced families to spend more time at home, leading to increased calls to 911 for domestic   violence  .    Such is another ugly side of this disease. 


According to United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres said in a recent tweet:


"Peace is not just the absence of war. Many women under lockdown for #COVID19 face violence where they should be safest: in their own homes. Today I appeal for peace in homes around the world. I urge governments to put women's safety first as they respond to the pandemic."

As divorce professionals, we need to be ready to face the impending flood of divorce filings as a byproduct of COVID-19, and many will include accusations and physical evidence of domestic  violence  In this webinar, you will understand the statistics of DV, the criteria for reporting, and who is responsible for reporting and to whom.  You’ll learn about the physical attributes of blunt force trauma and strangulation, and most importantly, how to report it, when to call the police and the local resources you may need to support your client.
