  • To ensure that, in the different phases of the process –like when giving statements, hearing sentences, appearances before the court– the victim does not come into contact with her aggressor.
  • To maintain fluid, permanent and personalized communication with the victim so that she feels as though she really has a reference figure who emphasizes with her situation.
  • To notify the victim of the imprisoned aggressor's release from prison or transfer.
  • To ensure that the process undertaken with the official complaint culminates successfully for the woman who is being abused and her children once her concrete situation is overcome, helping her to not give up on her aim to get out of the violent situation and aiding her to not feel alone or confused.
  • To optimize the resources used with the participation of a professional figure who is familiar with the dynamics of each service or centre.
