Women Aware works with domestic violence victims to increase their understanding of, and access to, the protections afforded to them by the law. Women Aware’s Legal Advocates are experts in the specific barriers that domestic violence victims face in the legal system.
The legal advocacy services offered by Women Aware are unique in that they do not rely on victims initiating contact. Instead, advocates approach victims in the court system. Middlesex is one of the few counties in New Jersey that has Final Restraining Order hearings every day.
There are several core services that Legal Advocates provide to clients in order to help them improve their safety: court interventions, court accompaniments, court preparation, case management, legal clinics and workshops, and advocacy.
