MSP’s Family Law Practice provides specialized legal services to survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking. Our family law attorneys conduct legal consultations and provide direct legal representation in family law cases, including those involving orders of protection, custody and visitation rights, child and spousal support, and abuse and neglect matters. Direct representation is provided in all Westchester County Family Courts, including White Plains, Yonkers, and New Rochelle, as well as both the Integrated Domestic Violence Courts (IDVC) in Yonkers and White Plains.
Clients are also supported by our bilingual advocates situated in the Family Justice Center as well as the White Plains and Yonkers IDVCs. Victim Advocates attend court proceedings, ensure the victims fully understand the status of the case and that their wishes are communicated, and assist in preparing the victim impact statements.
MSP also holds an Uncontested Pro Se Divorce Clinic which pairs survivors with pro bono attorneys to assist them in filing for divorce from their abusive partners.
