A helpline specifically for legal assistance in domestic violence cases.
Domestic violence often brings legal concerns into survivors’ lives. For the first time, an individual may need to figure out how to secure an order of protection, navigate child custody and divorce, understand criminal charges, property rights, or file legal motions regarding employers and housing. It can easily be overwhelming.
The Syms Legal Momentum Helpline is a unique resource for anyone looking for legal help, focusing on gender-based discrimination and violence in education, employment and the home. Individuals facing legal issues, including survivors, as well as attorneys, can contact the Helpline via email, an online web form or phone. When prompted, callers provide a brief summary of their issue and submit a request for legal assistance. The Helpline is not a live service like a hotline, but will return inquiries within two business days.
