Your $100 gift will provide one woman who has left an abusive relationship and who is involved with family court with accompaniment to legal appointments and court dates, debrief of outcomes and emotional support.
Attending court is a frightening experience and it is often the first time a woman faces her abuser after leaving the relationship. The abuser will attempt to use legal bullying and other fear tactics to regain control and punish her for leaving.
Having someone there to take notes and provide emotional support will make it easier for her to focus on achieving the best possible court outcomes for her and her children so they can move on without violence or the fear of violence.
Over the past 14 years, thousands of women have told us they feel safer, better informed and better able to present their case with specialized family law support from Luke’s Place. To learn more about our programs and services, visit lukesplace.ca.
