Navigating the Legal System After Surviving Domestic Abuse

Tx Young Lawyers Assoc


The Texas Young Lawyers Association has produced a video in English and in Spanish to help survivors of domestic violence.  This video includes details on what victims of domestic violence can expect when utilizing the courts to obtain a protective order, temporary restraining order or divorce.  The video portrays the story of “Melinda,” a domestic violence survivor, and her journey through the legal process. The goal of the program is to educate victims of family violence about their legal rights.

Hopefully, after viewing this program, some of the victim’s fear and confusion about the legal system will be eliminated.

This program is designed to be shown at battered women’s shelters, police departments, county and district attorney’s offices and other agencies that assist victims of domestic abuse.
