Are you the one leaving your house in a separation?
* personal documents – for example bank / cheque books, passports, marriage certificates
* any items of sentimental value
* things that you need for yourself and your children, including a change of clothing, school uniforms, school bags, books, toys, toiletries
If you are in personal danger from domestic abuse – remove yourself and ensure that you are physically and emotionally safe and those in your care are also removed from threats or the risk of family violence.
