We Are Survivors 

This blog is dedicated to the tens of millions of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect who get up every day and try to work and function in a world that seems to not care about us.

Victim Website For Legal Information

The National Center for Victims of Crime sponsors a website that provides valuable information and assistance for crime victims.  It is called VictimLaw and is accessed at www.victimlaw.info. VictimLaw is a unique and groundbreaking resource offering a comprehensive, searchable, online database of more than 16,000 victims’ rights-related legal provisions, including:

  • Federal and state victims’ rights statutes,
  • Constitutional amendments;
  • Court rules;
  • Administrative code provisions;
  • Case summaries of related court decisions, and
  • Summarized attorney general opinions.

This user-friendly tool, available free of charge, provides instant access to a wide range of regularly updated legal information, making it easier than ever to research victims’ rights issues.

  • Unlimited searching is allowed even without registration. The benefits of registration include your ability to save your searches, and there are regular updates on the status of VicimLaw’s collection.
  • Their “Contact Us” page provides a lot of useful information at http://www.ovc.gov/contacts.htm.
  • Two other tabs are helpful”  “Crime Victims’ Rights” and “Public Awareness.”
  • Their Training and Technical Assistance Opportunities can be found at http://www.ovc.gov/training/index.htm.
  • They also provide a downloadable tutorial that explains how to use VictimLaw.

I highly recommend that you check out this website. It may help you find information you have not been able to find anywhere else.
