Court Advocates

The JCADV will provide referrals to vital social services and court advocates in each parish and ensure victims of Domestic Violence get information, education, and assistance with questions and concerns about the legal system, their rights, police report filing, pressing charges, and obtaining protective or restraining orders. Thereby, increasing victim safety and making victims feel less overwhelmed by legal proceedings.


Victims of Domestic Violence are encouraged to call the courthouse in their area for more information on how to reach a court advocate: Parish Court
