Family Law Unit: Legal Assistance to Victims

Taking steps to start a life away from an abusive relationship can be difficult, costly, and are often further complicated when you have children and/or own property with the abuser. Our Family Law Unit attorneys provide representation on a full range of comprehensive civil legal services to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Westchester and Putnam Counties. We collaborate with community-based organizations to provide clients with assistance regarding immigration, housing, counseling & safety planning.


Our multilingual legal representation includes:

  • family offense - orders of protection
  • custody/visitation and child support petitions
  • spousal support
  • property issues
  • divorce
  • and other matters
