October 31: California Family Law for Low-Income Litigants: Child Custody, Visitation and Motions Practice

An estimated 80% of family law litigants are self-represented, and the statistic is higher for survivors of domestic violence.  Low-income litigants are in great need of your pro bono help.  Attend this free PLI program and volunteer with your local legal services agency to represent low-income family law litigants in need.  With a limited time commitment, you can help obtain essential legal protections needed for low-income families.
What You Will Learn
  • Child Custody and Visitation provides a basic overview of the statutes and case law governing child custody and visitation and procedure, including using the California Family Law Judicial Council Forms.
  • Motions Practice in Family Law Cases provides an overview of the procedural steps to obtaining immediate orders (including judicial counsel forms, family law hearings, etc.) and how to handle family law court hearings.
Who Should Attend: Any California licensed attorney interested in providing pro bono assistance to low-income family law cases (whether limited scope family law matters or full representation in a dissolution matter).  This training is designed for new attorneys and attorneys who are interested in transitioning to family law practice.
