Financial abuse is a common tactic used by abusers to gain power and control in a relationship. The forms of financial abuse may be subtle or overt but in in general, include tactics to limit the partner’s access to assets or conceal information and accessibility to the family finances. Financial abuse along with emotional, physical and sexual abuse, manipulation, intimidation and threats are all intentional tactics used by an abuser aimed at entrapping the partner in the relationship. In some abusive relationships, financial abuse is present throughout the relationship and in other cases financial abuse becomes present when the survivor is attempting to leave or has left the relationship.
NNEDV's Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum addresses financial abuse, financial fundamentals and foundations, mastering credit, budgeting strategies, and short-term planning. It has brochures on Ending a Financial Relationship with an Abusive Partner and Credit and Credit Repair.
