BENEFITING: SHEPHERDS DOOR
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2016
Help Shepherd's Door to free victims of domestic violence.
Shepherd's Door raising funds to support victims and survivors of domestic violence who do not have the financial resources needed to adequately respond to being served child custody papers or spousal support. We often see that the abuser usually has legal representation in court and or filling out legal documents served to the victim. Victims feel helpless, afraid and still controlled by the abuser and the judicial system. It is vital to victims of abuse to have legal advisors or representation to help them navigate the court system and responding to legal documents that are mandatory to be filled out appropriately. It is imperative that victims of abuse have the same chance to legal representation as their abuser.
