Legal Advocacy

The Safe Harbor Legal Advocacy provides support, information, advocacy and court accompaniment to victims and their families who are experiencing intimate partner violence or stalking. Safe Harbor’s Legal advocates assist victims with safety planning, information, and referrals to community partners. We are able to work with people by phone, in individual meetings, in court and in our offices to provide the specific support needed.

Legal advocates also provide information and referrals to victims of other types of abuse and concerned community members. Legal advocates are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice.

To reach the Safe Harbor Legal Advocate, call the 24-Hour Safe Harbor Helpline at 920.452.7640 or 1.800.499.7640. A Helpline advocate can offer support, resources, and general legal information, and can connect you to the legal advocate voice mail. Please leave a detailed message, including a safe phone number, and a legal advocate will return your call between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
