Things to Remember When You Seek Legal Recourse

“Hello there! I’m here to provide you with a bit of information on seeking legal remedies via court. I would like to remind you that suggestions on this post should not be taken as medical advice, legal advice, therapy, etc. or as a one-size-fits-all approach.  Keep in mind that every individual’s journey of  experiencing and navigating through stress or trauma is distinctive because you are one of a kind and no person is truly like you!  Experiencing abuse in any form is NOT OKAY, but what you are experiencing as a result of abuse is valid.  Please know that healing is not a formula and is not for anyone else to define for you. You do you, and you follow all that you need to follow, to help yourself. If you need additional resources or just someone to talk to, feel free to reach out to Imaara Foundation."

After facing sexual assault, you may choose to report the case and seek legal recourse to fight your case in court. To report a case to law enforcement and to pursue it in court is a decision for you to make.

For some, reporting has been seen as an act of liberation and closure, and has helped them heal, while some feel more comfortable about not reporting. Either way, it is a choice you are free to make, and must make upon having all the information you need.

If you want to report a case of sexual assault, here are a few pointers:

Where can I start the process of reporting?

Start by reporting to the police. Especially if you are at immediate risk, since they will come to you. You will typically be asked to report to a police officer at a police station in/near the area at which the violence took place.

What can you be prepared with when you report?

What format of reporting is preferred?

What can you expect when you report?

Is there a particular time limit within which I must report a case of violence or any violation?

What are some things you can remember or know when you report?
