Plaintiff and Defendant Domestic Violence Resource Brochures

Massachusetts Trial Court

As directed by the Act Relative to Domestic Violence, plaintiff and defendant domestic violence resource brochures have been created and will be distributed to all divisions in the relevant court departments, including the Superior Court, District Court, Boston Municipal Court, Probate and Family Court, and Juvenile Court. The brochures are useful resources for anyone with questions about domestic violence and sexual violence resources.

The plaintiff brochure provides statewide and regional listings for domestic violence programs, sexual assault programs, legal assistance support, child witness to violence programs, and the District Attorney's office.  

The defendant brochure provides regional listings for intimate partner abuse education programs, Department of Transitional Assistance offices, career centers, and legal assistance support. 

The brochures are available online now at the Trial Court Self Help Center on
