Talk to a Victim Advocate
When someone is being abused, the judicial system may seem confusing.
Samaritan House helps survivors understand the legal process and advocates on their behalf for the protections and services they are entitled to. Survivors may be eligible for emergency, preliminary and/or permanent protective orders. Protective orders can prohibit further acts of abuse by ordering the abuser not to have contact with the victim; it could grant temporary custody of minor children to the survivor and could grant exclusive possession of the home as well. In addition, we assist survivors with referrals to attorneys who help victims of trafficking with T-VISA’s and Continued Presence.
Referrals for free or low-cost legal assistance are offered through the Victim Advocacy Program at Safe Harbor Outreach Center.
