Court Advocacy

Moving forward and taking legal action against an abuser takes a lot of courage, and you do not have to go through this experience alone.  Court advocates cannot provide legal advice but they can assist in a number of ways:

  • Providing you with emotional support.
  • Providing support to family and friends, helping them through the process and assisting them in helping you.
  • Listening to your story and providing information about your legal rights and the options available to you.
  • Helping you to get in touch with law enforcement and other proper authorities.
  • Answering questions about your rights related to sexual abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking and other crimes you may have been the victim of.
  • Assisting with filing for Victim’s Compensation benefits.
  • Accompanying you to court appearances.
