While having legal representation is often critical and is considered the best possible option for survivors, sometimes this is just not possible. Therefore, ICADV’s Legal Resource Project is happy to provide these “pro se” legal forms for your client’s use. The term “pro se” means that the client is representing themselves and is filing this form on their own behalf. We believe it is best practice for the program advocate to work with the client in filling a pro se form out, and if need be seek legal technical assistance from ICADV Legal Counsel. Finally, it is important to note that the Indiana Courts have an online Self Service Legal Center that can provide a various resources.

Advance Directives Factsheets:

“Advance Directive” is a term that refers to your spoken and written instructions about your future medical care and treatment. Examples can include things like a Do Not Resuscitate Order, organ and/or tissue donation direction, a Heath Care Power of Attorney or a Living Will.  Each of these are designed to help your family and physician understand your wishes about your medical care. An advance directive may name a person of your choice to make health care choices for you when you cannot make the choices for yourself. If you want, you may use an advance directive to prevent certain people from making health care decisions on your behalf

Yes! We are Open graphics:

ICADV has created a Facebook cover photo and in-depth infographic to remind the general public that programs are still open and ready to serve survivors.
There are two options for Facebook cover photos (without the white and the text) and the more in-depth infographic.
  1. Create custom graphics for your program:
    1. Fillable Infographic has a field at the bottom for you to upload your logo (PNG with transparent background preferred) and a text field for you to fill in crisis line information, website, anything else pertinent. 
      1. If you would like to use this as an image for your website, social media, etc: After filling in your program’s information, you will click File -> Save As -> and from the format or file type dropdown menu (usually under the file name field) select “PNG”.
    2. FB Cover Photo: Is blank to allow a little more flexibility, so feel free to insert whatever info you feel is necessary there, your logo, crisis line, etc. however you normally create graphics/edit photos. 
  2. Use the pre-populated ICADV graphics if that is easier for you right now.

Indiana’s Domestic Violence Programs are open & ready to serve survivors during the COVID-19 outbreak: DV programs are considered essential under Governor Holcomb’s Stay-At-Home Order and are ready to provide residential & non-residential services.The ways in which some of those services are provided may look different.
Residential programs have relaxed rules as much as possible for healthy communal living. For everyone’s safety during the COVID-19 outbreak, some temporary new rules & restrictions may need to be established.
A survivor with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 can stay in shelter as long as they follow isolation procedures recommended by health officials and/or program staff.
