The Dane County Bar Association and University of Wisconsin Law School’s Pro Bono Project are proud to announce the redesign of the Family Law Assistance Center (FLAC). The clinic will operate virtually, allowing Dane County residents to make appointments with a lawyer or paralegal for information and guidance. FLAC will meet on first Friday of every month. In Jan 2021 the first Monday will be moved to Jan. 8th to accommodate the new year holiday.
The clinics will be held virtually, using Zoom. At the clinics, volunteer lawyers will meet individually with people via Zoom for a consult for up to an hour. Information, forms, and limited legal advice may be provided by no legal representation is available. The attorney volunteers will be assigned specific dates and the U.W. Law students will make and facilitate the appointments. Appointments can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 608-618-2970.
What can FLAC do?
- Give information on family court procedures
- Refer you to community resources
- Provide brief legal advice and assistance during the time you work with an attorney
Two or three attorneys/paralegals/law students can help you complete family law forms, including forms for divorce, paternity, restraining orders and post judgment motions.
These forms are available here: https://courts.countyofdane.com/prepare/formFamily
FLAC CANNOT RECOMMEND A SPECIFIC LAWYER.
The Family Law Assistance Center was created by the Dane County Bar's Delivery of Legal Services Committee to help meet the needs of unrepresented family law litigants. Over 1000 people use this service each year, and more than 100 Dane County lawyers and paralegals have volunteered their time to make this project a success.
