Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault & Stalking

Our Central New York Victim Assistance Project (VAP) 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 some cases.

 

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 allow survivors to become independent from their abusers, such as problems with finances, housing, public benefits, access to healthcare, immigration and other legal problems.

 

Counties Served

We serve Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Oswego, and Otsego with VAP funding.

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