If you are the victim of domestic violence and need legal help, this guide will help you find someone who can help you with your case. A lawyer who knows about domestic violence may be the best person to help. Parts of this guide will give you ideas about how to find one. However, you may not be able to find a lawyer to represent you in court. This guide also gives you ideas of other ways to get help with your case without a lawyer.
This quick guide has links to websites that may help you and some national telephone numbers. Please feel free to contact the NCJFCJ’s Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody at 800-527-3223 or visit the website at www.rcdvcpc.org for information and referrals.
