The Domestic Violence Legal Clinic (DVLC) provides hope and healing for domestic violence survivors, their children and families through effective, full-service legal representation.
Our location in the Cook County Circuit Court Domestic Violence Courthouse allows us to offer clients emergency legal services related to Orders of Protection. Our services also extend to encompass the family law, immigration and economic matters that are linked to the long-term safety of survivors and their children, including dissolution of marriage, parenting responsibility and child support matters as well as U Visas and VAWA petitions.
Finally, our Client Support Coordinators help clients identify the range of issues that impact their safety. They make personal safety plans and referrals to address clients’ challenges to create safe and sustainable outcomes for survivors.
