Survivors of Trafficking

The RIGHTS (Representation Information and Guidance for Human Trafficking Survivors) Program provides comprehensive free civil legal services to survivors of human trafficking living in Broward County. RIGHTS is a trauma-informed, holistic legal program. Under this approach, a survivor will not have to recount their experiences with multiple attorneys, but will rather work with only one attorney on multiple legal problems. Legal services in this area include: expungements, T-visas, civil injunctions, divorces, name changes, and parental responsibility. RIGHTS services are free and there are no financial eligibility restrictions.

To apply for services regarding expungements for survivors of human trafficking, fill out the referral form and email it to humantrafficking@legalaid.org.

To learn more about services available to survivors of trafficking contact 954-736-2460 or humantrafficking@legalaid.org.
