Since 1993, inMotion has helped thousands of women free themselves from abusive relationships, stay in their homes and win the financial support to which they--and their children--are legally entitled. Our mission is to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of women--low-income, under-served, abused--by offering them legal services designed to foster equal access to justice and an empowered approach to life. We fulfill our mission by providing free, quality services, primarily in the areas of matrimonial, family and immigration law, in a way that acknowledges mutual respect, encourages personal growth, and nurtures individual and collective strength. Informed by this work, inMotion promotes policies that make our society more responsive to the legal issues confronting the women we serve.
For 20 years, inMotion has confronted the challenging needs of families in crisis by providing free legal services to low-income women and children in New York City, helping thousands of women free themselves from abusive relationships, stay in their homes and win the financial support to which they--and their children--are legally entitled.
All of our clients live in poverty and most face violence at home and threats to their children’s wellbeing, with the financial pressures of the economic recession putting even more women and children at risk for physical abuse. Unemployment and rising costs are further straining their financial stability. The legal needs of the women we serve are immediate and urgent, and theydeserve competent legal representation regardless of their ability to pay. With barely enough money for life’s basic necessities, hiring an attorney is not an option.
Our services are designed to address the unique needs of women who are victims of domestic violence. We also reach out to immigrant women who are isolated by language and cultural barriers.
