Ready to Assist
Our advocates assist victim-survivors of domestic abuse. We provide guidance and answer general questions about the following civil legal matters:
- Custody (Parental Rights and Responsibilities)
- Protection from Abuse Orders
- Protection from Harassment Orders
Our Community and Legal Advocates can accompany victim-survivors to court to provide emotional support. We can also help negotiate final orders.
New Hope for Women partners with Pine Tree Legal Assistance, Inc. to represent victim-survivors in cases involving Protection from Abuse Orders. When Pine Tree Legal Assistance is not available, we make every effort to request legal representation from local attorneys and are often able to pay for those attorneys.
New Hope for Women also works with attorneys to identify opportunities for survivors to obtain legal representation for family matters such as divorce.
We're standing by to help
If you are considering a Protection from Abuse Order as part of your safety plan, or need information about other civil legal matters, please call our 24/7 helpline to speak with an advocate.
They can help you get started.
