Experiencing Domestic Abuse and Not a UK National?

Non-UK Nationals have the right to live free of abuse too

If you are not a UK National and do not have indefinite leave to remain in the UK, your legal rights may be more limited in some areas.

Even so, you DO have the right to live free from domestic abuse and have the same rights to protection from the law as everyone else. Your partner is subject to the same sanctions. If you and your children are being hurt or frightened by your partner contact the police.
