Is Your Client Safe? Encouraging Disclosure

This fact sheet is part of the Is Your Client Safe? series about relationship violence, which supplements the brochure Is Your Client Safe? A Lawyer's Guide to Relationship Violence. It explains why your client may not disclose relationship violence and provides steps you can take to encourage disclosure.

Because women experience a much greater risk of serious injury or death in violent relationships, this fact sheet refers to your client as "she."

See Abuse & family violence for a complete list of all the fact sheets in this series.
