Formerly known as inMotion, Inc.

inMotion is a volunteer organization

Leveraging the professional talents and personal interests of our volunteers is at the core of what inMotion does best.

Our volunteers

Every day inMotion's staff and volunteers are on the front lines protecting mothers and children from abuse.

Our volunteer lawyers secure orders of protection that keep families safe. They help battered immigrant women become legal residents, enabling them to obtain good jobs and a full range of benefits for themselves and their children. Our pro bono volunteers also obtain child support orders against fathers who refuse to pay, so that mothers with custody can provide for their children. And they represent women seeking divorces in obtaining custody of their children and a fair share of the assets of the marriage. Learn more.
