Washington County Family Law Clinic

Event Date

The Family Law Self-Help Clinic is funded through a grant from the Administrative Office of the Courts. The attorney provides legal assistance, through a free and limited consultation on how to represent yourself. The attorney will aid in obtaining and completing forms related to matters of divorce, custody/visitation, child support, and name change. The consultation may also include answering or clarifying questions about court procedures and making referrals to legal service providers and community resources.

If the family law matter is too complex, or otherwise inappropriate for the clinic, the attorney will attempt to refer individuals to an appropriate resource. If you have a complex case, you should retain an attorney.

Clinic Attorneys:

DO NOT represent individuals.
DO NOT file paperwork for individuals.
DO NOT go to court with you or help try cases.
DO NOT call, write letters, or otherwise communicate with opposing parties, attorneys, or Judges.
DO NOT help individuals who already have an attorney.
DO NOT assist with discovery.
DO NOT draft or review separation agreements.

The Family Law Self-Help Clinic operates during the week, on a first-come, first-served basis, at the Circuit Court for Washington County.
