Legal Resources

For domestic violence survivors, not finding a trusted and affordable lawyer can be a very traumatic experience. This can lead to long drawn court battles, pendency in cases and extreme mental stress. This adds another layer to the already existing trauma being faced by a survivor, making it very difficult for them to navigate their and their children’s life ahead. So, we at Invisible Scars, decided to tie up with legal professionals we trust, so that you can get the help you need. Our lawyers are vetted Human Rights Defenders and you can choose the professional best suited for you. Write to us on to fix up a time with the legal professional for a consult. The first consultation charges are fixed at Rs. 3000/- for an hour and appointment will be fixed only post payment. Once the connect is made Invisible Scars will step out of the process and leave it to the lawyer and survivor to discuss the modalities and work through the case. We will only get involved if the survivor or their lawyer requests for very specific involvement or discussions.
