    When bad things happen, the Attorney General’s office offers help to victims in North Carolina.

    The Address Confidentiality Program helps victims keep their address safe from abusers. The program gives anonymity to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.

    Seniors in nursing homes and their loved ones can report suspected elder abuse or fraud at any facilities that get Medicaid funds.

    North Carolina Family Resources
    Domestic violence, also known as partner abuse, spouse abuse, or battering, occurs when one person uses force to inflict emotional or physical injury upon another person they have, or had, a relationship with. It occurs between spouses and partners, parents and children, children and grandparents, and brothers and sisters. Victims can be any age, race, or gender.
    Domestic violence is the single largest cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the United States, more than muggings, car accidents, and rapes combined. Each year between 2 million and 4 million women are battered, and 2,000 of these battered women die of their injuries.
    Without help, abuse will continue and likely worsen. Many resources are available to help you understand your options and to support you. No one deserves to be abused.

    If you are a victim of domestic violence, you can learn about your rights and the protections that North Carolina law affords you.

    We can also help you learn where to go for shelter and support in your community. Our Address Confidentiality Program can help by allowing victims to keep their new address safe from possible or former abusers.

    Domestic violence is against the law in North Carolina (N.C. General Statutes Chapter 50B). Victims of domestic violence have the right to take legal action to end the abuse.

    We work to educate the public about domestic violence and the laws against it. We assist in developing legislation and policies aimed at preventing domestic violence and protecting its victims.
    If you are a victim of domestic violence, our Address Confidentiality Program can help. This program will help keep your new address safe from possible or former abusers. For more information, call us at (919) 716-6785 or email acp@ncdoj.gov.
