How can I find a lawyer or an organization who is specialized in domestic violence and can help with my case?

Orlando, FL |

I have gone through severe abuse, and my ex has moved away with our child. I have no contact to my child any longer. My ex remarried within a month, and even if we were going to raise our son together, he moved him to another county in Florida. I don't even know exactly were they live right now, and my child is being raised by another woman.

The police is not the answer for me, because of the abusive relationship was in, and I have to find a way to work it out in court instead. Money is an issue, and I don't know where to get the help needed. Are there any pro bono lawyers or organizations around Orlando who can help? Where do I turn? Do I dare to go to court on my own otherwise?

Set up an appointment with the local legal aid office. The best way to get something done about this is to hire an experienced family attorney in the area.

Contact your county's local bar association and see if they have a low cost attorney referral service.

Contact the Orange County Bar Association and ask them if there is a legal aid organization in your county that can assist financially challenged people who need court intervention. Good luck.
