Legal Helpline

The Domestic Violence Action Center’s Helpline provides referrals and procedural information for obtaining TRO’s (temporary restraining orders), applying for child support, reporting child abuse and using the justice system. Staff listen with no judgment to the challenges facing victims or family members, assist a person to make decisions for themselves, and take applications for other services provided by Domestic Violence Action Center.

On the Helpline, we answer other questions related to safety, personal choices and individual legal rights to live free from violence. Employers, healthcare professionals,  teachers, other community professionals are welcome to call with any questions they may have about people with whom they are in contact who may need guidance.
