CASES WE HANDLE
Immigrant Children’s Program
In partnership with Connect Families and The Children’s Trust, CABA Pro Bono works to provide undocumented minors in Miami-Dade County who have been abandoned, abused or neglected with free legal representation and community services to help them succeed and thrive.
Domestic Violence Victims Representation Program
In 2018, 104,914 crimes of domestic violence were reported to Florida law enforcement agencies resulting in 64,573 arrests. Many more survivors of domestic violence are not reporting their abusers to the police or accessing services due to reasons such as shame, fear, or being prevented from doing so by their abusers. CABA Pro Bono is passionately committed to removing barriers for victims who are in need of legal representation. The CABA Pro Bono Domestic Violence Program, also known as the “Podemos Program,” provides a holistic approach to legal services for domestic violence survivors in our community. We represent low-income survivors in divorce, paternity, domestic violence injunction and child support cases.
Human Trafficking Victims Representation Program
Worldwide, human trafficking is on the rise. Pursuant to the Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking, “Florida has been identified as a hub for human trafficking activity, citing one of the highest incidents of human trafficking in the country,” affecting both foreign and domestic individuals.” In addition to the numerous social service needs of victims of human trafficking, they are often faced with overwhelming legal issues. CABA Pro Bono has a specially trained staff attorney to represent victims and to address the wide array of legal needs they may have.
Florida has the third largest veteran population in the nation. CABA Pro Bono is thankful to the sacrifices made by our veterans to protect and serve our nation. The CABA Pro Bono Veteran’s Representation Program provides a holistic approach to legal services for low-income veterans who need help in the areas of family and landlord/tenant law. We represent veterans in divorce, paternity and child support cases, as well as landlord/tenant matters.
