What are the domestic abuse laws in Chicago, Illinois?

My sister is suffering a lot of domestic abuse.


Answer by  Zoe (2369)

If your sister is being abused, it might be worth it to contact an organization called RAINN. Their volunteers are very knowledgeable about domestic abuse and can probably point you in the right direction towards getting help for her.


Answer by  TheAnswerFairy (2345)

Domestic abuse is against the law everywhere. No one deserves to be hurt, and especially not by the person whom they are supposed to be able to trust the most. When she is ready, any domestic violence shelter can help.

Your sister should know that in Chicago there are many free legal domestic violence and mental health centers that she could get help from. It is illegal and before filing charges, she should get help from a shelter, hotline, or court.
