Because domestic violence is such a huge problem in South Carolina, I want to continue to highlight agencies that help victims of domestic violence. SOVA is South Carolina’s State Office of Victim Assistance. It provides help with some crime related costs of domestic violence. Visit their website to see eligibility criteria, forms for assistance and how the process works. (en Español) SOVA also provides information on victims’ rights, victims’ laws as well as a list of Judicial Circuit Solicitors that work on these cases.
