 Divorce and Custody

Legal Services of Northern Virginia (LSNV) is a non-profit public interest law firm that provides free legal assistance to low-income residents of Northern Virginia. Our mission is to promote justice by providing free, high-quality legal advocacy and information for elderly, disabled, and low-income individuals and families who face the loss of a critical need, such as personal safety, income, housing, medical benefits, education, or family stability.



LSNV News
         LSNV Campaign for Equal Justice

The LSNV Campaign for Equal Justice supports the work of Legal Services of Northern Virginia. The Campaign references the core belief that civil legal aid assures fairness for all in the justice system - not just for those who can afford it. The Campaign is designed to create a reliable and sustainable source of funding so that LSNV can provide legal services in Northern Virginia to those less fortunate. For almost 35 years, LSNV has been a vital part of the local community and the broader community. Last year alone, LSNV handled more than 5,500 cases that directly benefited more than 13,500 low-income Northern Virginians. The recession, coupled with cuts in federal, state, and local funding, has meant that as the need for LSNV's services has grown, it has become much harder to secure necessary funding. LSNV's revenue is approximately $600,000 less than it was just a few years ago. The LSNV Campaign for Equal Justice will help ensure that thousands of Northern Virginians have access to the justice they deserve for years to come. The need is great. For each person we help, we turn away one due to our limited resources. Each person and family that we could not help was just as deserving as those we serve.

Our Clients

Our client endured an abusive 16 year marriage. Over time, the abuse increased in frequency and severity, and much of the abuse occurred in the presence of the couples' three children. When the husband threatened to kill her in the presence of her children, the client finally decided to leave. LSNV represented the client in obtaining a civil protective order that granted her exclusive use of the subidized apartment. LSNV also represented the client in requesting the local Housing Authority to terminate the husband from the subsidy. The client and her children continue to reside in their apartment, and they no longer endure domestic violence.
