If your partner has been charged with domestic violence, you may need support throughout the court process. Our attorneys can access information about your partner`s case, an upcoming release, bail conditions, contactless order specifications and other court matters. Our Community Service Advocates (CAS) continue to provide telephone services and support to their clients. If you work with a CSO lawyer, you can contact your lawyer directly by phone or email, and they will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are not currently affiliated with a CSO lawyer and would like to speak with a TANF lawyer, including assessing a domestic violence time extension, please call the CSO Lawyer Line: 509-789-9289. I understand that the YWCA Domestic Violence Service Centre (DVSC) does not guarantee legal representation for clients. Navigating the legal system and courts can be overwhelming. Federal/state/local legal terms, processes, and laws are often confusing and frustrating. For more information, see our Legal Advocacy Quick Start Guide.

This is the fastest way to get an answer.

It was unbelievable. – YWCA Spokane Client Our lawyers can help survivors of intimate partner domestic violence by answering many questions about civil or criminal lawsuits.
