Family Law Assistance Program
Every Tuesday from noon to 1:00 p.m., in room 1104 of the Justice Center, volunteer attorneys assist Washington County self represented family court litigants by providing forms, written instructions, and checklists. They also provide procedural guidance and assistance in completing the forms and following the written instructions. There is no cost for the service. No appointment is necessary. Walk-ins are welcome, and will be assisted on a first-come first-served basis. Self represented parties can use this service pre-judgment and post-judgment for divorce, legal separation, annulment, child support, and other family court actions.
NOTE: The volunteer attorneys cannot provide legal advice as part of this program. All parties to Family Court cases are encouraged to consult with an attorney. There is no substitute for legal advice received from an experienced family law attorney. An experienced family law attorney retained by a party can explain options and provide information to that party regarding the long-term legal and financial consequences of those options.
The Family Law Assistance Program will not be available the week of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and the 4th of July.
