  • Violations of Injunctions for Protection

 The IFP Project Attorney meets with survivors to assist them in determining whether filing a Petition for Injunction for Protection is appropriate.  The IFP Project Attorney assists survivors in completing and filing the initial petitions, provides representation at: 


  • IFP hearings
  • IFP violation hearings
  • Hearings to defend against modifying or terminating injunctions
