The Legal Advocacy Helpline provides immediate access to legal information and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence city-wide, and is the only service of its kind in New York City. Advocates provide callers with basic and in-depth information and advocacy concerning the police, district attorney, criminal and family court, probation and parole, and social services such as shelter, housing, public assistance, and immigration.
The Helpline staff works collaboratively with many other non-profit and city agencies to coordinate services, make referrals, and in some cases, locate direct legal representation for family court proceedings.
Legal Advocacy Helpline:
Monday – Friday
9:30 am – 5 pm
