Family Court Help Center

The assistance service center is free of charge, and no prior scheduled time is necessary. It gives basic legal information to individuals who are powerless when it comes to understanding how the wheels of justice turn and or they are incapable of obtaining legal services.

The center facilitates people with fundamental DC family law issues like child support, divorce, visitation, and child custody. They also implement the following task in order to assist you with your legal matter:

  • “Apprise you about your legal rights and responsibilities,
  • Explain to you your legal options in your case
  • Assist with the filing out of the proper forms relevant to your case,
  • Expound on the litigation process and general details about your hearings; however, if your matter is challenging, they will direct you to other public / legal organizations that can assist you.”
