Family Law Clinics

We're hosting monthly family law clinics in libraries, neighborhood centers, and other local centers in rural Texas communities. We can answer your questions about family law topics like divorce, child custody, visitation rights, paternity, and name changes.


Our attorneys are able to meet with clients living deep in the heart of Texas through private video chat. During the thirty-minute appointments, clients and their attorneys can together create a plan for getting the best outcome for their case. We offer what is called, "limited-scope representation." That means we're able to give advice, review legal paperwork, and help you navigate the justice system -- but we're unable to represent you in court. 

 

Eligibility

We're funded by a grant that requires us to serve those living at or below 125% of the federal poverty guidelines. 

 

We understand that can be confusing. We recommend submitting an online registration form, that way we have all the information to determine if you qualify.

 

How It Works

Select the clinic location you would like to attend below. Our registration form will ask you for information we need to determine if you qualify for our free services. If we review your information and you do not qualify, we will call you at the number you provided to let you know. 

 

During registration, you can select an appointment time. That way you can get in, get out, and get on with your busy day. Bring any legal documents related to your case, do your best to arrive on time, and we'll see you there!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I qualify?

We're funded by a grant that requires us to serve those living at or below 125% of the federal poverty guidelines.

 

We understand that's confusing -- we recommend registering for the clinic you want to attend. Once we receive your registration form, we'll look through the information to determine if you qualify for our services. If you do not qualify, we will call you to let you know.

 

Do I need to register?

No. We accept walk-ins, but we do give priority to those who've made appointments or are on the waitlist.

 

How long will it take?

Each meeting with our attorneys is 20 minutes. However, if you were not able to select an appointment time, you may have a wait while we work to squeeze you in.

 

Do I need to bring anything to the clinic?

No, you don't need to bring anything but yourself. But if you have any court documents related to your case, it would help us if you brought them.

 

What legal issues can you help with?

Our attorneys and paralegals specialize in family law. Family law includes divorce, custody, visitation, child support, paternity, and name changes.
