CT Safe Connect’s domestic violence hotlines are open. Call or text 1-888-774-2900 or use the chat function at www.ctsafeconnect.com.

Only a few state courthouses are operating and their business hours are limited. You may only enter an open courthouse if you are involved in a criminal arraignment or other criminal proceeding, filing or have a hearing for a Temporary Restraining Order or Civil Protection Order, or filing or have a hearing on an emergency motion for things like a temporary child custody or lockout case.

PREPARE for Your Care can help you prepare for medical decision making. This tool will help you explore your wishes and learn how to discuss them with family, friends, and medical providers. PREPARE also offers legally-binding advance directives in English and Spanish.
