For the record, I was a domestic violence victim for two years before I escaped and went through the trial of sentencing my ex, who tried to kill me.
That being said, I now know and have confirmation that my neighbor is abusive towards his wife. We've called security before- call it my intuition- and yesterday the wife basically made it clear to me things are real bad. She's always trying to talk to me, but I'm real busy and wanted to keep a distance. We've never chatted for more than 5min in the hall.
Well now she's considering leaving him, but unsure of what to do. I'm going over there Monday to help her with paperwork for something unrelated. My SO thinks I should not go over there and help her at all, that it's going to cause problems. He's afraid of her husband finding out I helped her in any way. I just want to help and give her resources for her and her two children...we sometimes hear them fighting and it's terrifying.
She's f/ Morroco, has no family here, no friends, and no internet- her English is only okay- so literally she has NO ONE to help her, let alone anyone who has ANY idea what she's going through. I feel compelled to at least give her resources...
What should I do??? Go over there Monday and help her....not go...or offer resources, but say I do not want to be further involved in any way???
Any advice is great, thx

Give her the help. I know my husband would support me if I had to help someone in that situation.
