While we can assist you with completing paperwork to request an Order of Protection and how to prepare for your hearing in family court, we do not have attorneys on staff and cannot provide legal representation or legal advice. You are not required to have an attorney for an Order of Protection hearing. However, having an attorney can be very helpful. If you need legal representation, please contact South Carolina Legal Services or the S.C. Bar Association.
For assistance with completing an Order of Protection petition, please complete our online intake form or call 1.800.291.2139 (press ‘1’ to speak with someone) to complete a phone intake. You will need to provide a safe phone number or email address so that someone can follow-up with you. Once your phone intake is completed, you will hear from a member of our team within five business days to set-up a meeting. Please note that Safe Harbor services are voluntary and should be initiated by the person seeking services, not by a service provider, loved one or third party.
