Domestic Violence Prevention

CA Lawyer Magazine Features BayLegal’s Domestic Violence Prevention Work

BayLegal’s Domestic Violence Prevention Project takes a holistic approach to representing survivors from all walks of life. The family law unit’s services are designed to empower survivors with the information and options they need to stop the abuse and build safe, stable lives for themselves and their children. The project offers free legal assistance in obtaining restraining orders, divorces, support orders, safe custody, and visitation orders.

BayLegal’s Domestic Violence Prevention practice helps survivors with:

  • Temporary Restraining Orders
  • Divorce, legal separation or annulments
  • Child or spousal support
  • Custody and visitation orders
  • Battered spouse waivers
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) enforcement
  • Immigration issues faced by domestic violence survivors
  • Training and community education
  • NOTE:  BayLegal does NOT handle DACA matters or other immigration matters. Please contact Catholic Charities or International Institute of the Bay Area for more information
