Our Family Law Project assists individuals, families with children or families with domestic violence in matters including marital dissolutions, child custody, child support, restraining orders, guardianships, conservatorships, wills, powers of attorney and probate litigation. This is a full-scope project in which the volunteer can take the case from start to finish. Depending on the circumstances of each case, cases can last for weeks, months or even years. Before you volunteer with this project, we ask that you attend this free MCLE training session.

This training will be given by VLSP's Supervising Attorneys who will go over the volunteer procedures as well as the forms for completing a simple divorce. The substantive portion of the training must be viewed ahead of time on the Practising Law Institute's Web site. For more information on how to view this webcast and attend our live training, please email VLSP . Pre-registration is required to attend.
