Area of Law:
The King County Bar Association Pro Bono Services department works with over 1400 volunteer attorneys, paralegals, law students and community members to provide free legal assistance for low income King County residents.
The SHP Program assists clients with cases in the following areas:
Non-contested marriage dissolutions (divorces that are agreed or in which the other party will not respond)
Establishment of a parenting plan and child support in non-contested cases when the father has already been determined
The SHP Program completes all of the legal paperwork, so clients are relieved of the pressure of having to complete documents on their own. We are here to instruct clients about the legal process, inform clients of their rights and responsibilities, and to assist with the paperwork. We are available throughout the legal process to address any questions or concerns about the court process.
WE DO NOT
Represent clients in court
Assist with contested marriage dissolutions (divorces)
Assist with parenting plan modifications (cases where there is already a parenting plan)
Assist with back child support owed
