Need to meet with an Attorney? Each county’s Circuit Court holds Family Law “Self-Help” Clinics where attendees can meet with an attorney for a short period of time to discuss their legal problems.  The meetings are free and can be utilized over the course of your case.

Please contact the respective court as the days and times are subject to change. Note: all courthouses are closed on Federal holidays.
