Legal & Social Service Advocacy
Every month, KAFSC provides free legal consultations with attorneys from local law firms and partnering agencies. As an organization focused on assisting domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and sexual abuse survivors, the legal clinic helps survivors learn about their legal rights and options. Through the clinics, many of the individuals are represented pro-bono for a variety of different cases including divorce, child custody, VAWA, Order of Protections, among others.
Monthly Legal Clinic
Domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors learn about their legal rights and options through KAFSC’s free Monthly Legal Clinics and one-on-one consultations with attorneys with partner agencies such as Sanctuary for Families, Her Justice, and Queens Legal Services.
We are seeking family, immigration, criminal, civil attorneys for our Legal Clinic. Please contact our counselor, Christine Joo, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any leads.
