The legal system can be overwhelming
If you would like some help with a potential or existing court matter, the first step is to talk with a Hope & Justice Project court advocate. Once she has a better understanding of your situation, she can help you decide what your next steps may be. An advocate may be able to help you file a complaint with the court (example: complaint for Protection from Abuse), go to the courthouse with you, and/or connect you with an attorney.make an appointment with an advocate learn more about legal advocacy
