Family Court Support Services
Our Family Court Support Workers provide support to victims of domestic violence navigating the Family Court system. We support clients in helping them to understand 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:
- Facilitating the understanding of the Family Court system by debriefing outcomes of court appearances and appointments with lawyers
- Conducting risk assessments and developing safety plans
- Providing assistance in documenting the history of abuse
- Accompanying and supporting clients during court proceedings, where appropriate
