If you or someone you know is a victim of a domestic abuse-related crime, The Women’s Shelter & Support Center’s legal/court advocates are available to assist you through the civil/criminal court process in our service area.

Our advocates will assist you throughout the court process, attending court appearances with you or on your behalf. All of our advocates are trained to assist with filling out and filing Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders.
