echolove:  Can you help her identify resources in your community? Do you have women’s safe houses or transition houses?

Can you help her acccess free legal advice? Most areas have a program where the first visit is free?

Is there a Battered Women’s Centre in her area? She should talk to an expert who will advise her on what steps to take. There is a Bee with expertise in this area. I remember her cautioning someone else not to listen to the inexpert advice of many Bees because it could just inflame the situation.

I’m so sorry. This is such a heartbreaking, scary situation. The national domestic violence hotline has good resources: http://www.thehotline.org/help/help-for-friends-and-family/ 

Please, please, PLEASE do not have your fiance confront him. You could end up putting her life in danger.
