Consumer Rights Screening Tool for Domestic Violence Advocates and Lawyers

General Material
Published Date
January, 2011

This tool is meant to be used by attorneys and advocates working with domestic violence survivors to help them determine if a client might be facing consumer law issues that would necessitate referral to a consumer rights attorney or advocate. The document begins with an explanation of how consumer issues can affect survivors. General screening questions to be used for issue-spotting are then provided. It is suggested to use the questions as a starting point for dialogue rather than feeling the need to run through all the questions like a checklist.
