Live Violence Free (LVF) is committed to promoting a violence free community through education and advocacy to address domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. If you have been the victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking and your legal issue is directly related to the abuse you have experienced, the legal program may be able to help you.

LVF provides its clients with essential services by collaborating with community-based organizations and its legal support staff that are dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence and individuals who live in fear of future domestic violence in the household.

Live Violence Free may be able to represent you regarding issues of protection orders, child custody & visitation, child support, immigration, and housing.  Services include legal advice, legal representation, document preparation, safety planning, court accompaniment, legal advocacy and translation services in Tagalog and Spanish.
