If you’ve been hurt by a household or family member–or have experienced stalking, harassment, or dating violence–you may benefit from legal expertise. We partner with Legal Aid of WV and local attorneys to provide legal assistance to those experiencing domestic violence, harassment, stalking, dating violence, and sexual assault. Advocates at any of the local programs can assist you with obtaining legal counsel, which can help with protective orders, housing, employment accommodations, name changes, immigration, access to public benefits, child custody, child support, and other issues.
Those who engage with survivors involved in the civil and criminal legal systems can better assist survivors when they understand and can explain the legal process and how our laws may impact survivors.
The Coalition provides regular trainings to domestic violence advocates across the state to help ensure survivors receive the best services possible.
