Tri-Valley Haven assists residents of Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin in obtaining domestic violence restraining orders against abusive current or former intimate partners. Trained advocates are there to assist victims in obtaining retraining orders and can provide information and referrals on related child custody and child support matters.
There is no charge for the Haven’s legal services, and filing fees for domestic violence restraining orders are waived.
Weekly legal clinics are held every Tuesday in Pleasanton from 5:30-7:30 at the Brittania Business Center, 5890 Stoneridge Drive, and every Thursday from 2:00-4:00 in Livermore at 3663 Pacific Avenue. It is recommended that attendees call ahead to reserve a time slot, but drop-ins are always welcome. Appointments with an advocate can be scheduled at other times if necessary.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women in the United States between the ages of 15-44 years old. Additionally one out of fourteen men has also been physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabitating partner, boyfriend/girlfriend or date at some point in their lives.
