Tools for Accessing State Legal Resources

The materials below include directories of legal resources in each state in the U.S., and are designed to assist those individuals seeking legal advocacy and information on specific state laws (largely surrounding family law matters). The various directories include state and local bar associations; other lawyer referral services; volunteer (pro bono) opportunities for those looking to assist survivors in legal matters; and legal aid organizations across the country, which provide no or low cost legal representation. Also included below for quick reference are resources describing specific state laws surrounding protection orders and family law matters, such as divorce and child custody.
