 Domestic Violence

     Victim Witness Advocates are assigned to  domestic violence cases referred to the DA Offices.  The advocate is the intermediary between the victim and the criminal justice system.  An advocate is available, both inside and outside the courtroom to answer questions about cases and to provide information about the court process.  You will be notified of court dates throughout the process and the advocate can accompany you into the courtroom and provide emotional support throughout the process.  Ask  if there is a safe waiting area outside the courtroom where you can sit.  Learn about the resources that are available to victims of domestic violence in Maine.  There are many caring people and organizations that are there to help you through difficult times.  

Kids First Center     Its mission is to minimize the emotional and sometimes physical trauma children experience during the separation and divorce of their parents.
