Pro Bono Volunteer Information
ANDVSA’s Legal Program provides free legal assistance to low-income victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in divorce, child custody, protective order, and other civil proceedings through staff attorneys and volunteers.
A 2015 victimization study in Alaska found that 50% of females had experience some form of intimate partner violence and/or sexual assault during their lifetime. Civil legal assistance is the most effective way to increase safety for these individuals.
In fiscal year 2019, the Legal Program received over $650,000 of in-kind donated legal services! By volunteering, you can provide victims with real tools that they need to maintain safety, such as full custody for their children, a protection order and financial support.
We provide training and resources for attorneys, including our Volunteer Family Law Manual with form pleadings. You can learn more about the benefits of pro bono by reading our Volunteer Attorney of the Month profiles.
