Free Legal Clinics
Legal clinics give general legal information and brief legal advice. You can also get help with forms, and ask questions about the law. Most legal clinics handle civil law matters only.
Talking to someone at a legal clinic is not the same as hiring an attorney, because the attorneys there will not take your case or represent you in court. Going to a legal clinic can help you decide if you can handle the matter on your own, or if you should hire an attorney.
Topic: Family law, including divorce and custody issues
Location: Services are provided online. If the client does not have a computer, tablet or phone with internet connection we can help make arrangements to find a suitable location. It is easy to connect. The client opens an email and clicks on the link--nothing to download. The client will be able to see the attorney and law student online along with the document.
