What is the Family Law Workshop?

In the State of Georgia, individuals may file court actions without the benefit of legal representation.  Those individuals however, are responsible for knowing and following appropriate court procedures and processes.  By law, court staff cannot give legal advice to self-represented people.  In order to assist individuals who choose not to proceed with traditional legal representation, this joint venture was established to offer the family law workshop.

What does the workshop cover?

This workshop will focus on these case types:
-Paternity/Legitimation -Modification of Child Support

Attorney Referral

Navigating through the legal system can be extremely difficult.  Each case is individualized by its own set of facts; however, there are some basic rules that all cases must follow which this workshop will address.

No workshop can teach you everything you need to know about representing yourself in any legal action, but this workshop is designed to answer some of the basic questions you may have about the court system.

Please understand that this workshop is designed to give legal information NOT advice.  You will still be responsible for completing all forms and knowing and following all procedures.
