LAWS PASSED IN 2002
ACCESS TO EMERGENCY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SERVICES AND SHELTER (Intro 120A) The law adds a new section to the Administrative Code which specifically prescribes that domestic violence victims who apply for emergency shelter or related services cannot be denied such shelter or services solely based on the lack of documentary evidence of the incidence of domestic violence. It also defines family members as those who are not only related by blood, but also as those who exist in non-traditional relationships, whether they share a child and are unmarried or have lived together.
