Vexatious: How Abusers Use Our Systems Against their Victims

Location Name
Event Date
Wednesday, July 24, 2024, 11:00AM

Many abusers misuse the court system to maintain power and control over their former or current partners. Only three U.S. states, Tennessee, Washington, and Vermont, have a law specifically to stop a former romantic partner from filing vexatious litigation against an ex. Misuse of the legal system by perpetrators remains relatively common and the stress incurred from this experience can drain victims’ finances, cause them to miss work, pull them away from their families, and force them to navigate the complex legal system, often on their own. This webinar will explore how these systems can be leveraged against victims and what professionals can do to mitigate the harm.
