Survivors of gender-based violence often require legal help with family law issues in order to definitively break the cycle of abuse. A divorce can provide a fresh start and may be required to resolve financial issues related to the marriage, including requests for financial support or dividing marital property and debt. We offer free representation in Dissolution of Marriage cases.
