Creating a Safety Plan: Protecting Your Well-being

Safety plans are vital tools that help individuals and families navigate challenging situations and ensure their well-being. At the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, we understand the importance of developing comprehensive safety plans to address various issues and protect your rights and safety.

What Is a Safety Plan?


A safety plan is a personalized, practical strategy designed to keep you, your family, or your loved ones safe in times of crisis. Safety plans can address a wide range of situations, including domestic violence, child abuse, stalking, and other circumstances that threaten safety and well-being.


When to Consider a Safety Plan


Safety plans may be necessary under several circumstances, such as:


1. Domestic Violence

If you are experiencing or have experienced domestic violence, a safety plan can help you protect yourself and your children.

2. Child Abuse and Neglect

For families facing allegations or concerns related to child abuse or neglect, a safety plan can help ensure the safety and well-being of children.

3. Stalking and Harassment

Individuals who are victims of stalking or harassment can benefit from a safety plan that outlines measures to protect their personal safety.

4. Divorce and Family Law Matters

During divorce or custody disputes, a safety plan can help address concerns about property, financial, and emotional well-being.

How to Create a Safety Plan

Creating a safety plan is a proactive and empowering step to safeguard yourself or your family. Here are some key elements of a comprehensive safety plan:


1. Identify Risks and Triggers

Understand the specific risks and triggers in your situation. This might include identifying people, places, or circumstances that pose a threat to your safety.

2. Communication Plan

Develop a communication strategy to stay in touch with trusted individuals who can provide support and assistance when needed.

3. Safe Locations

Identify safe locations, such as a trusted friend’s house or a domestic violence shelter, where you can go in case of an emergency.

4. Legal Measures

In cases involving legal matters, consult with an attorney to explore protective orders, restraining orders, or custody modifications that can enhance your safety.

5. Financial and Personal Documentation

Gather important documents, such as identification, passports, bank statements, and insurance information, and store them in a safe place.

6. Emergency Contacts

Compile a list of emergency contacts, including local law enforcement, shelters, and support services.

7. Self-Care Strategies

Develop self-care practices to manage stress, anxiety, and emotional challenges.
