How Legal Aid Helps Domestic Violence Victims

LSC-DomesticViolence-Infographic

Legal aid makes a huge difference in the lives of low-income individuals facing domestic violence. Attorneys help victims seeking protective and restraining orders against their abusers. They also assist with other legal issues that frequently confront people experiencing domestic violence including child custody, housing, and divorce. Without access to legal help, any of these problems may stand in the way of survivors leaving abusive relationships or regaining their sense of safety and security.
