While domestic violence may not seem to be too big of a problem, it is much more prevalent in Florida than many people realize. Often, victims do their best to hide what is happening behind closed doors out of fear that they will be further injured or even killed by their abuser. In the circumstances where victims are able to escape unharmed, it is often only after considerable plotting to get around the abuser without being found out.
