Limited Scope Representation Project
The Limited Scope Representation Project provides legal representation and advice about specific parts of your family law case. For instance, the attorney can consult with you about the components of a separation agreement or help you understand a request for documents you have received from the other party. The attorney will not represent you in court and will not help you with every legal issue in the case. This program can be helpful to you if you are comfortable representing yourself but need assistance and advice with limited issues. The service is free and available to women and men.
