Family Court Support Workers provide support to victims of domestic violence navigating the family court system. We support clients in understanding their rights for making informed decisions on matters related to custody, child support, spousal support, and division of property and assets.
The program provides the following supports:
• Facilitate understanding of the family court system by debriefing outcomes of court appearances and lawyers appointments
• Develop safety planning and risk assessments
• Assistance in documenting the history of abuse
• Accompaniment during court proceedings where appropriate
