Domestic Violence Project

The APALRC provides legal assistance to domestic violence survivors in the District of Columbia and Maryland. APALRC attorneys provide their clients with legal assistance – assisting with protective orders and immigration matters (particularly self-petitions under the Violence Against Women Act).

In addition to providing legal assistance, APALRC attorneys work with community-based organizations and social service organizations to ensure that their clients receive holistic support. Outreach is also conducted to educate the community about the rights of mistreated immigrants and the resources available to them.
