Members Viola Posted May 26, 2021 Members Share Posted May 26, 2021 Disclaimer: this question does not apply to me. This is for my niece and nephew. So here is the situation, ny niece and nephew lives with their eldest sister and her family. The eldest sister's live-in partner physically and mentally harms my niece and nephew. At one point, he punched my niece in the face that she had a black eye just because of an argument regarding household chores. He also shoved my nephew one time. He regularly berates them and tells them they are just like their dead father. Is there a law that could protect them? Their eldest sister is also a battered woman but she sides with her partner and not her siblings. I thought the violence against women and children covers this, but when i read the description this is to protect women in a sexual or romantic relationship. Since my niece and nephew do not fall under this requirement, will it still be applicable to them? And are there options for them to report such abuses? My niece is 20 yo and my nephew 15. This treatment apparently has been going for several years. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
