Working to protect victims of domestic violence and their families from further abuse.


Land of Lincoln’s goals
in family law cases are to protect victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, and their children, from further abuse; and to achieve safety and/or stability for children in custody determinations.

Types of cases Land of Lincoln may help victims of domestic violence with include:
• Orders of Protection, Civil No Contact Orders, and Stalking No Contact Orders
• Divorce
• Custody

Land of Lincoln may also be able to help with the following family law cases:
• Custody cases when the parent who has been the child’s caretaker is in danger of losing custody
• Some divorces

In some areas, we offer self-help clinics on divorce.
