Family Court Legal Program

Our team of attorneys, pro bono volunteers, and law students can assist you right at the Family Courts in White Plains and Yonkers. FCLP staff will guide you through the court system and provide representation for your initial order of protection. If appropriate we will then refer you to other PWJC programs or community partners for further representation and support services. No appointment needed.


Our multilingual services can help victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse seeking assistance with:

  • Drafting and filing family offense, custody, and child support petitions
  • Initial court representation for emergency orders of protection & related child custody and support
  • NYS Office of Victim Services information
