Court Advocacy & Legal Services
About Court Advocates
Wesley Shelter provides court advocacy for victims and survivors involved in civil or criminal cases as a result of experiencing domestic violence or sexual assault. Trained Wesley Shelter Advocates can assist in a variety of ways.
Advocates can assist with paperwork for domestic violence protective orders and criminal charges. Also referrals to the appropriate resources such as the appropriate people in law enforcement, the District Attorney, a magistrate, clerk offices, and victim services and compensation can be made. These referrals can also be made at our main office.
About Legal Services
While our Advocates cannot provide legal services, Wesley Shelter does have an attorney on staff that can assist with case preparation and representation in civil and criminal cases, when applicable.
