Abstract

Security of essential opportunities (HAM) is one of the essential pillars of a democratic state, beside the supreme nature of guideline which is reflected in the norm of The rule of law. In Indonesia, there is a legal institution or organization that is often called an advocate, which is a forum for someone who works as an advocate/lawyer. There is a law that regulates the profession of lawyer or advocate, specifically Law No. 18 of 2003 on Advocates. The family as the smallest unit of society does not escape the rules and/or laws set by the State or society and religion. Violence is very close to children's lives, children's experiences of violence are very diverse in violence, perpetrators of violence, places where violence occurs, and causes of violence. In discussing the problems contained in this research, the author took 2 (two) approaches, namely a normative juridical approach and an empirical juridical approach. The role of advocates in accompanying and protecting women victims of domestic violence is essential so that children receive equal justice under the laws in force in Indonesia so that children receive guarantees for their welfare.
