The objective of the family law department is to provide access to the judicial system for low-income parents with legal issues relating to child custody, child support and domestic relations. A low-income parent who needs a lawyer to help with child custody issues can come to Legal Aid. Our family law attorneys focus first on cases where there is abuse involved. Low-income parents also seek help with divorce, custody and support cases.
Low-income parents, especially mothers, can take advantage of many outreach and educational opportunities that Legal Aid’s lawyers present. Through collaboration with other organizations that serve low-income parents, Legal Aid’s lawyers provide legal information and advice through seminars, meetings, brochures and fact sheets. Legal Aid staff have also trained a network of volunteer lawyers, giving hundreds more low-income women and men access to a legal voice in fighting for their rights.
