“Time’s Up: A Guide on How to Leave an Abusive and Stalking Relationship”

The late Susan Murphy Milano turned her 20 years of experience in the field of high risk domestic violence cases into more than a book, but a tool for others to use in order to save the lives of those needing escape from a violent or stalking relationship. Born with an instinct to come up with strategies to escape the abuse happening in her own home, Susan  consistently used that instinctive gift towards helping others by working with them in the “danger zone.” Everyone involved in the movement against family violence should have these tools available, especially the unique “Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit” which is a series of forms and a video that will be a voice for victims who need to be heard.  Cases will be resolved and abusers will be arrested. Created from incidents surrounding the Stacy Peterson Case, the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit (E.A.A.) was created for victims of domestic violence, to insure that the victim’s words about her fears and previous violence will not disappear if she does. The ability to prove who likely seriously injured, abducted, or killed …

Launch of Document the Abuse Campaigns for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Document the Abuse (documenttheabuse.com) is gearing up awareness campaigns for October  to coincide with National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Campaigns will be launched across all social media channels as well as through outreach to individuals and community organizations. Pastor Neil Schori of Naperville Christian Church in Naperville, Illinois has developed a campaign that will address the faith-based community and it’s role in assisting victims of intimate partner violence.  (safefaithcommunity.com) Schori hopes to encourage leaders to become safe havens for victims of abuse and to duplicate what he has set up in his home church. According to Schori, “Victims often have limited resources available to seek immediate and long-term help when leaving an abusive relationship, especially those considered high risk. We have established a system of counseling and referrals, along with assisting victims in preparing an Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit (EAA), which we intend to bring to other church leaders.” The EAA was developed during the high-profile disappearance of Stacy Peterson when Schori, who was Peterson’s pastor, was approached by intimate partner violence prevention activist, Susan Murphy-Milano. Together they were able to utilize …

Just as a podcast stays around forever, the legacy of Susan Murphy Milano and the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit lives on for the benefit of victims of abuse.   In November of 2011 The Roth Show featured Susan Murphy Milano, Attorney Holly Hughes and the developer of the iEAA Apple App, Chet Hosmer, on the show to explain the details of how the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit (EAA) should be used.
