EDISON – Experts say that as many as one in four women face some form of domestic violence in their lifetimes. For those who don’t know what to do or can’t afford legal help, Legal Services of New Jersey (LSNJ) has produced a 12-part video series about virtually every aspect of obtaining legal protection.
Part of LSNJ’s Legal Rights Video Series, the free videos offer a do-it-yourself guide for victims of physical, verbal, sexual or any forms of abuse from partners, family members or others.
“If you or someone you love has suffered domestic violence, there is hope,” said Monica Gural, LSNJ supervising attorney. “You can take these steps on your own, even if you cannot afford a lawyer.”
Legal Services of New Jersey has produced a 12-part video series about restraining orders which is available on their YouTube channel.
The videos are available at www.lsnjlaw.org. Low income individuals facing domestic violence problems may also apply for help online at www.lsnjlawhotline.org or call the hotline at 1-888-LSNJ-LAW (1-888-576-5529).
The video series includes an introduction, explaining the restraining order process and offering an overview of the remaining videos in the series. Four videos deal with temporary restraining orders, while the remaining seven talk about final restraining orders.
Legal Services of New Jersey, located in Edison, coordinates the state’s system of Legal Services programs which provide essential legal aid in civil matters to low income people.
