Legal Advocacy

Are you ready to get a temporary or final restraining order?

We can support you through the court process 
and help ensure your safety and rights are protected. 

Our Court Advocate can: 
  • Inform you of your rights as a survivor of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
  • Assist you in applying for a temporary restraining order.
  • Answer any questions regarding temporary and final restraining orders. 
  • Act as a liaison between you and law enforcement, court staff, attorneys, etc. (with your permission).
  • Offer court preparation and accompaniment for temporary and final restraining order hearings. 
  • Provide follow-up support through the confusing, and often overwhelming, legal system.

  • Assist you in other court matters regarding your domestic violence or sexual assault case.
For more information, please call 973-247-8490 and ask
