Connecticut understands the seriousness of domestic violence and wants to help victims get out of dangerous situations to find safety. The Office of Victim Services provides a number of services to the victims of domestic or family violence. Family violence can include physically violent acts between people who live together, are married or are in a dating relationship with each other. These forms of violence can include assault, kidnapping, disorderly conduct, and more.

One of the most common and important resources for victims is an order of protection. There are a few different orders of protection that a person can file for and it is important to speak with an attorney who can determine which options may be best for you. Additionally, the state of Connecticut works with a number of organizations to help victims of domestic violence. These include the Clifford Beers Guidance Clinic for child victims, the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the Domestic Violence Crisis Center for Spanish-speaking victims, and Wellmore Behavioral Health, among others. The Office of Victim Services also has a toll-free helpline that can provide you with assistance.

Any victim of domestic violence should reach out to these services and work towards getting out of the dangerous situation, which is always easier said than done. Contacting an experienced family law attorney can help you find the resources to get out of a dangerous situation and work towards turning over a new leaf and getting a safe, fresh start to life.
