Pro Bono Opportunity: June Virtual Family Law Advice Clinic

Looking for a pro bono volunteer opportunity? NSLAC is looking for Pro Bono attorneys to provide virtual one-hour consultations at our Family Law Advice clinic for people seeking legal assistance. Family law experience is required.

At the June 19 family law clinic, pro bono attorneys will discuss a wide range of family law topics, including drafting of simple petitions for dissolution or other basic forms, providing an overview of obtaining and enforcing child support, aspects of parentage cases, post-decree issues, and advice and counsel on the unique questions that arise during a family law proceeding.
