Legal Advocacy

Depending on your situation, you might determine that taking legal action against an abusive partner is the best course for you.

Please call our hotline at (208) 733-0100 and our advocates can connect you with resources for legal help.

You can also visit and search state by state for information on laws including restraining orders and child custody information.

Not a U.S. citizen? Learn more at Casa de Esperanza about your rights as an immigrant and read more on our site.

According to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), immigrant women who are experiencing domestic violence — and are married to abusers who are U.S. Citizens or Legal Permanent Residents — may qualify to self-petition for legal status under VAWA. Get more information here.
