Know the Laws:
UPDATED December 29, 2015
Dating violence (or relationship abuse) is a pattern of controlling behavior that someone uses against a girlfriend or boyfriend. Please visit www.loveisrespect.org or www.thatsnotcool.com for more information.
A great place to start if you need help is with The National Teen Dating Violence Helpline. You can chat with an advocate online through their website www.loveisrespect.org. You may prefer to call their helpline at 1-866-331-9474 or 1-866-331-8453 TTY.
There are also lots of resources for teen dating violence listed on our website, WomensLaw.org on our National Organizations - Teens page.
