SafeNest will help you navigate legal options.

We provide court advocates to assist and support during legal proceedings in Family and Criminal Court.

  • Family and Criminal Court Support

    Going to court can be intimidating and overwhelming. SafeNest advocates at Family and Criminal Court help ease this burden by providing support in ways that include attending hearings with survivors, informing survivors about the process, helping survivors understand the outcome of their hearings, and assisting with planning next steps.

  • Emergency Temporary Protective Orders (ETPOs)

    Emergency Temporary Protective Orders (ETPOs) are special protection orders that can be served to the perpetrator while in police custody for domestic violence. ETPOs can be processed over the phone by a SafeNest advocate via the 24/7 Hotline.

  • Temporary Protective Orders

    SafeNest offers assistance to victims of domestic violence in their application to the court for a Temporary Protective Order of Protection. A TPO is a civil court order issued to prevent the aggressor from further threats and/or harassment of the victim. SafeNest advocates support survivors whether they file in person or at SafeNest’s virtual TPO office.
