Our Victim Assistance Court Program assists victims of domestic violence who seek to file or renew 50B Domestic Violence Protective Orders (DVPOs) or 50C No-Contact Orders because they've been recently assaulted, threatened, and/or stalked. Victim Assistance Court Program advocates also provide a number of additional services, including:
DVPOs are essential components of many victims' safety plans and can greatly impact a victim's ability to live independently from an abuser. DVPOs can determine temporary child custody arrangements as well as a range of financial outcomes, such as right to live in a shared home and retain possession of a vehicle. Without effective advocacy and legal representation, the lack of a court order can leave a victim destitute.
Walk-ins are welcome, but we ask that clients arrive by 3 p.m. to ensure same-day completion/filing of paperwork with the court.
