These guides provide answers to common questions about: divorce, spousal support, orders of protection, child custody and visitation, and child support.
Combatting Cyber Sexual Abuse: A Manual for Advocates
This Manual is a collaboration of gender-based violence advocates and other professionals in New York City who have seen an increase in instances of cyber sexual abuse in our practice and who identified a need for a comprehensive manual for advocates.
This manual does not constitute legal advice. It is intended to provide an overview of both legal and non-legal ways to advocate for clients who have been victims of cyber sexual abuse. It is important to note that both technology and the law in this area are evolving rapidly and so advocates should use this Manual as a foundation only and should always look for updates in statutory and case law when advocating for victims of cyber sexual abuse.
