Legal Advocacy

Safe+Sound Somerset helps survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence navigate the often overwhelming legal system. We have a strong partnership in the Somerset County Court system, and offer comprehensive legal support including:

  • Information about domestic violence law, your rights within the legal system and the process of obtaining a court order of protection (restraining order)
  • Safety planning
  • Advocacy with law enforcement, court personnel and legal services
  • Legal clinics and pro bono individual attorney consultations

Legal advocates are not attorneys. We refer clients to Legal Services of Northern New Jersey if they meet the low-income requirements.

Safe+Sound Somerset is determined to strengthen the legal system on behalf of domestic violence survivors in Somerset County through our Legal Advocacy program. If you need further information on our Legal Advocacy program, call or text our 24-hour Helpline at 866.685.1122.
