Divorce can be nearly impossible for women in insular communities in the US that practice arranged marriage. They often have no money or education and no understanding of the US legal system. They may face religious laws that limit women's divorce options.
Unchained gives those women a free or low-cost divorce attorney who's trained to end arranged marriages. Unchained helps the women get the social services they need as they reinvent their lives, such as shelter, employment and counseling. Unchained pairs the women with mentors who can provide guidance and support. And Unchained advocates for changes to laws that can leave women trapped in arranged marriages, such as the laws surrounding minimum-marriage age.
