Family Services provides critical legal advocacy services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking seeking relief in legal matters arising as a consequence of abuse. Our legal advocates assist victims in completing paperwork for and filing of Temporary Restraining Orders, Permanent Restraining Orders, and Custody Orders. Advocates can file paperwork for the victim if transportation, childcare, or other barriers exist. During their sessions with clients, advocates also conduct lethality assessments, safety planning and provide referrals to shelter and other services. Family Services also contracts with attorneys through outside firms who can represent victims in court.
