New law seeks to help abuse survivors move more easily
An online report published by the Southern California Public Radio on December 26 stated that a new law in California will come into force next year to help victims of domestic abuse escape violence.
The law, which will go into effect on January 1, aims to help domestic abuse victims more easily get out of their lease agreements by allowing statements issued by a medical practitioner, a counselor, or a healthcare provider that verify the tenant is currently struggling to escape violence and needs to break the lease to move away for safety.
Counselors believe this new legislation will provide abuse survivors with the ability to move out quickly and prevent financial hardships.
