Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault & Stalking

Our Central New York Victim Assistance Project provides free civil (non-criminal) legal services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. Clients generally must have low income and low resources, but we make exceptions in certain cases.

Some of the legal problems we handle include family matters such as orders of protection, divorces, separations, child custody and child support. We also handle other legal problems that keep victims from becoming independent from their abusers, such as problems with finances, housing, public benefits, access to healthcare, immigration and other legal problems.

Counties Served

Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Oswego and Otsego.

In Onondaga County, call the Hiscock Legal Aid Society (315-422-8191).
