Legal Support

Legal Advocates provide survivors assistance with:

  • completing and filing Domestic Violence Restraining Orders through Family Court
  • information to better understand legal rights and how the courts work
  • a free confidential legal consultation so clients can speak with an attorney
  • referrals to external no/low-cost legal services
  • Peaceful Contact workshops – please see below for how to sign up

A  confidential Virtual Legal Clinic is available so clients can schedule an appointment to speak, online, with an attorney on any legal matter.

Peaceful Contact is a type of modification made to a Criminal Protection Order issued to a person by the criminal court in domestic violence cases. The modification allows the restrained person to contact the protected person as long as all contact is peaceful. To sign up for a virtual Peaceful Contact workshop, please register through the following links.

NDS Workshops are offered on Zoom in English and Spanish.  More information and registration are included on the links below.
