Family & Youth

Family Law

Legal Aid family law attorneys provide advice and legal representation to people facing issues of:

  • Divorce and custody
  • Abuse and domestic violence

We give priority to low-income, undocumented immigrants due to scarcity of agencies providing civil legal services to those without citizenship status.

Youth Law

Legal Aid youth law attorneys staff our Youth Law Project (YLP) with a focus on:

  • The legal rights and responsibilities of young people statewide
  • Giving them an understanding of their legal options
  • Helping them meet their goals

We provide free legal advice and representation to:

  • Youth, under the age of 18
  • Young people, 18-24 years old:
    • in high school, or
    • working with a transitional living program, or
    • experiencing homelessness
