Legal Information and Advocacy – What’s available to you

Genesis House has Legal Advocates who work in the shelter and the Lorain County Municipal Courts to assist victims of domestic violence who have filed criminal charges against their abusers. Advocates explain the process and the victims’ rights and responsibilities in the case, as well as accompany people to court during their case or to get protection orders.

We want to provide you with information as to your rights, police and court involvement so you are prepared and understand your options and support with legal proceedings.

See further information on obtaining a Civil Protection Order, what happens when a crime is committed and information on court proceedings.
