    Product Description

    Today there are more than five million women and their children are living in a violentrelationship, and this number is increasing as new technology from tracking devices on cell phonesto computer technology allow an abuser to track its’ victims every move.

    Domestic violence and stalking related crimes are being dismissed in a flurry of shuffled divorcedocuments and court orders of protection. You cannot plead with an abuser and walk away frompotentially life threatening situations if you are unable to learn the steps necessary to protect yourself.

    In this straight forward, clearly written guidebook, veteran violence safety expert Susan Murphy Milano provides victims the tools and support they require to face this debilitating problem and take the necessary steps to regain control of their lives.

    Victims and those going through divorce now are able to provide information, in their own words, about the fears, dangers, experiences they have had at the hands of their abuser.

    Like our own individual fingerprints, no two crimes against a victim are the same. An abuser is clever like a fox and this book will teach you the techniques to be ten steps ahead before a threat against your life can be carried out against you or your children.

    With the Evidentiary Abuse affidavit provided in this book a victim will be able to provide legal documentation and answers, allegations and fears that arise when a person has disappeared when they announce the relationship is ending, gone missing or have been found dead. You will be able to properly document and describe:

    -Threats made against your life or well being,

    -Incidents of past abuse that a victim had endured

    -Admissions of how a threat will be carried out against a victim once they announce they are leaving or filing for a divorce

    -Where evidence or weapons would or could be located

    -Portray visible injuries or marks

    -Determine how to begin and continue through the complex maze a victim faces with police and prosecutors-How to leave a Perpetrator-How to collect evidence "on the fly"

    How to begin and continue on the road to safety using a virtual toolbox of techniques

    How family and friends can be crucial in this process

    Using the creative approaches developed in this ground breaking guide book by Susan Murphy-Milano will take the victims from the State of being controlled to the "State of being in control."

    Susan is the author of Defending Our Lives, Getting From Domestic Violence and Staying Safeand Moving Out Moving On when a Relationship Goes Wrong Workbook.

    "There is nothing like this out there. The reason this book is so valuable is that it’s the first book to provide step-by step procedures and structure to protect everyone from dangerous and abusive relationships" -Rev. Jennifer Burns Lewis, Pastor

          This review is from: Time’s Up: How to Escape Abusive and Stalking Relationships Guide (Paperback)

          Susan’s book is like the "Bible" for anyone in an abusive relationship. She takes your hand and walks you step-by-step through what you need to do to survive. Susan has a way of making you feel like she’s there with you, giving you the strength, determination & tools you need.

          If you have a friend or family member in an abusive relationship, this book is the best gift you can give them.

          We need to have this in courts and shelters across the country. This is a book that needs to be made available to everyone in an abusive relationship.

          Highly recommend – that’s putting it lightly.

          This review is from: Time’s Up: How to Escape Abusive and Stalking Relationships Guide (Paperback)

          Susan Murphy-Milano has written a "How To" book for those wanting to escape abuse and stalking. She is thorough and thoughtful in her plan. This is a book long needed. Domestic Abuse, Stalking and murder of women and children are on the rise and Susan strives to help them put an end to it.

          Susan is an effective advocate who has dedicated her life to saving the lives of DV victim’s. She possesses the unique insight into the victim’s mind as she herself was a victim of abuse. Her father was an abuser who murdered her mother. Susan knows what it’s like to be a child of abuse. She also knows how to help those caught in the trap of abuse and she holds their hand through the process of escaping abuse and stalking.

          She has many helpful tools in the book as well as innovative ideas on keeping oneself alive. Any woman contemplating escape from abuse or stalking needs this book. Shelters and DV professionals could benefit greatly from her experience and wisdom. I highly recommend it.

          Nicki (milwaukee) – See all my reviews

          This review is from: Time’s Up: How to Escape Abusive and Stalking Relationships Guide (Paperback)

          This book guides victims of abuse and stalking towards safety by showing them the unseen pitfalls of leaving a violent relationship and how to navigate around them. "Time’s Up" also has explicit details and instructions how to fill out an "Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit&
          quot;, one of the unique things that Susan Murphy-Milano has created and used through the years in high danger cases which has saved the lives of many.

          As Susan says on her website at […] "Imagine if Stacy Peterson, Lisa Stebic, Renee Pagel, Mary Jane Zich, Kelly Currin Morris, Mary Badaracco, Peggy Dianovsky, Kelliesue Ackernecht,Sandra Travis, Rachel Conger,Theresa Parker, or Renee Pernice had the opportunity to complete the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit…..the offenders would be arrested and these cases would be resolved.".
