MY ABUSER HAS A GUN

If you have a current Protection From Abuse Order (PFA) from a court against your abuser, or if your abuser has been convicted of a felony or domestic violence misdemeanor, then Federal law states that it is illegal for your abuser to buy or have a gun in their possession.

You MUST ASK THE JUDGE to specifically write in your order that the abuser cannot buy or have a gun while the order is in effect and to require that your abuser to give any guns to the police, or require the police to go to the abuser's house and get them. The guns then go to either the county sheriff or court clerk of stolen property. The district attorney in the county where the gun(s) was taken away can then file to have them destroyed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the domestic violence agency in your area immediately.

Indiana Unemployment Law Protects Victims of Domestic Violence.

Under Indiana statutes Title 22, Article 4, Chapter 15 (2004), an individual shall not be disqualified if they voluntarily left employment or were discharged for reasons directly related to domestic or family violence. To apply, have verification in the form of a police report, a protection order, or an affidavit from a domestic violence service provider. For more information, call 888-WORKONE.

Indiana Offers Address Confidentality Program.

Victims of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault can maintain a confidential address through the Attorney General's Office. Participants with protective orders in place receive a confidential post office box number to have their mail sent to and to use as their legal address, thereby keeping their home addresses out of many public data banks. Applicants must be referred to the program through a domestic violence advocate trained in the program's requirements (see below).
