FAMILY LAW LEGAL HELPLINE FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The hotline informs victims about their rights and obligations towards their spouse, children and relatives, taking into account the context of their situation. Volunteer lawyers answer questions related to child custody, access rights, alimony, alimony payments, division of the family residence, etc., whether or not the person is in an emergency situation.
In march 2020, we launched a legal helpline in collaboration with our partners to answer questions about family from victims of spousal violence and post-separation violence. Faced with the unique health containment measures, the risk of spousal violence increased.
The service is provided by a lawyer from Juripop’s family law team. Calls are 20 minutes long and are made in complete confidentiality: no personal information is required or compiled. The 20-minute duration is a balance between helping as many people as possible and providing an adequate and complete response.
