NY Crime Victims Legal Help

If a person is a victim of a crime, NY Crime Victims Legal Help can provide them with legal help in issues related to housing, family, employment, finances, and other related concerns. The user friendly website makes it easy for people to find legal help where they live and with a specific issue they have. There are Live Help Agents that will assist victims in real time. With their help, they will be put in touch with a civil legal organization that can help them. 

There is a Know Your Rights section that informs victims what they are entitled to. After finding this information out, it is recommended that a lawyer be contacted. There is a legal directory where they can be found.  

Legal forms are available on this website. These forms are related to custody, divorce, child support, domestic violence, etc. For questions about filling out these forms or acquiring the right ones, victims should contact a lawyer through the legal directory.
