  • Empowering Survivors of Domestic Violence

Court Advocacy

Going to court can be an intimidating experience. Please call our hotline to arrange for an advocate to accompany you to court for any of the following:

  • File Court Papers
    • Orders of Protection
    • Child Support
    • Custody Forms
    • E-Petition Service
  • Obtain Legal Aid
  • Court Accompaniment
  • Community Referrals

Our bilingual staff support survivors in Family, District, Integrated Domestic Violence, and Human Trafficking Courts, in both the Central Islip and Riverhead courthouses.

E-Petition Service

Advocate-assisted services offer domestic violence survivors the opportunity to submit orders of protection online, thus enhancing privacy, limiting wait times, and expediting the filing process.

Touro Law Center & Interns

Brighter Tomorrows is entering its seventh year in partnership with Touro Law Center. Our Court Advocate Office is located in the William Randolph Hearst Public Advocacy Center, which also hosts 15 other local non-profit agencies, and is adjacent to the Central Islip Courthouse. In 2011, Brighter Tomorrows was granted a Student Practice Order by the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division allowing Touro Law School students to collaborate with our pro-bono attorney to provide legal representation for shelter and non-residential clients.
