Frank was referred to CAAFA by law enforcement; the mother of his child was physically abusive, and he needed an Order of Protection. CAAFA’s Legal Advocates helped him obtain the Order of Protection and then accompanied him to court when the child’s mother contested it.
With guidance from CAAFA’s Legal Advocates, his Order was upheld and Frank successfully negotiated for visitation rights with his child. When arriving at CAAFA, Frank was not aware that he had experienced domestic violence.
With help and education from CAAFA’s Advocates, Frank has a better understanding of his rights, and how to identify controlling behaviors and red flags in his relationships. Today, Frank is in a safe and healthy relationship based on equality.
