Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program


Providing Quality Court Assistance to Survivors


A New Leaf’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program provides women, children, teens, senior citizens, and men suffering from domestic violence crimes with court advocacy.

Acting as a key support service, Court Advocacy focuses on providing individuals with the tools and resources necessary to apply for Orders of Protection and Injunctions of Harassment. Court Advocates are bilingual in Spanish and English at all sites, assisting individuals in person or over the phone.


Service from Our Hearts to Yours


The Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program provides survivors of domestic violence the tools and expertise they need to secure court protection from abusive partners. The uncertainty of legal proceedings can often prevent survivors from seeking court assistance. To avoid this from happening, Court Advocates provide the following services:

  •      Assistance with protective orders and their filing
  •      Referrals for protective orders, legal assistance, and advocacy as needed
  •      Court Accompaniments for protective order hearings and some family court hearings
  •      Safety planning, community resources, and referrals as appropriate
  •      Victim Rights information
