To help fight domestic violence, the Attorney General strives to enhance cooperation between state agencies, provide helpful information to victims, and promote statewide awareness and education. The Attorney General’s Office also supports legislation to combat domestic violence and sexual assault, while implementing grant programs and other initiatives, such as Verizon Wireless's HopeLine Program, which donates cell phones to local shelters for victims.
If you feel you have been a victim of domestic violence, please call the police if you are in immediate danger. You should also call the Virginia Family Violence and Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-838-8238 for confidential help and referral information. The Office of the Attorney General does not provide domestic violence counseling and cannot give you legal advice.
