10 steps for presenting evidence in court

RCDV: CPC's New Self-Represented Litigants (SRL) Homepage

Victims who cannot afford to hire an attorney or find legal representation must represent themselves in court and need practical and informed assistance in preparing evidence, conducting themselves in court, and understanding the purpose and consequence of the proceedings/processes in which they are participating. The Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody (RCDV: CPC) has developed a series of SRL guides designed to assist victims in finding guidance and preparing and presenting evidence for a court so that the domestic violence they experienced--and its impact on their children's wellbeing--is considered. These resources have been translated into Spanish and reviewed for plain language. These resources now are available in one place on the RCDV: CPC website:

If you are the victim of domestic violence and need legal help, these guides will help you find someone who can help you with your case. A lawyer who knows about domestic violence may be the best person to help. Parts of this guide will give you ideas about how to find one. However, you may not be able to find a lawyer to represent you in court. This guide also gives you ideas of other ways to get help with your case without a lawyer. This quick guide has links to websites that may help you and some national telephone numbers.

Please feel free to contact the NCJFCJ's Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody at 800-527-3223 or visit the website at www.rcdvcpc.org for information and referrals.
