The Domestic Violence Unit

 

 

The Domestic Violence Unit- Suffolk County: After the loss of our Domestic Violence Project in 2009, we have reintroduced a limited legal service component in Suffolk.  Legal representation to Suffolk domestic violence victims is provided in family law matters, including orders of protection, child support, custody and visitation. Individuals who are not eligible for representation through Legal Aid or the 18B panel will be eligible for assistance from this project. Referrals must be made by a domestic violence agency.

In addition, thanks to HUD funding, we are currently serving domestic violence victims who are residing in a shelter, or who are otherwise homeless as a result of fleeing from domestic abuse.  Immigration status is not a factor. These clients do not require a referral and may also be eligible for Legal Aid or 18B. Please call (631) 232-2400 with referrals or for more information.

Funded by the Suffolk County Legislature and HUD.
