Domestic Violence

The victim assistance coordinator of the Miami County Attorney's Office can assist individuals who are victims of domestic violence, by providing access to resources such as Safehome, counseling, and law enforcement.

Victim Assistance Coordinator
In cases where criminal charges are filed against the perpetrator, the victim assistance coordinator:
  • Advises the victim of all court dates and court procedures and accompanies the victim to court
  • Assists with the preparation of victim impact statements and restitution claim forms
  • Provides information for resources for counseling victims and their children
  • Assists with the preparation and filing of protection from abuse orders (restraining orders)
To contact the victim assistance coordinator during business hours, please call 913-294-3181.
