Legal Issues Faced By Victims of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is not only a devastating personal experience, it also may result in a victim’s involvement in a variety of legal proceedings. The victim may seek safety through the courts through abuse prevention orders or she may become a witness in a criminal case. She may seek divorce, custody or support in family court or risk losing custody in juvenile court because of Department of Children and Families involvement. She may also have issues with housing, benefits and immigration.


Finex House is shelter for battered women and their children; especially those who have disabilities and/or women who are trafficked. Our mission is to provide shelter and services for all battered women, especially those who have dropped through the cracks of existing service providers.
