We are excited to announce our second Family Law Clinic for people with criminal records. We will be offering one-on-one appointments with our reentry attorneys for any person with a criminal record who needs help with issues related to family law.


At this clinic, get help with family law issues like:

  • Understanding your rights in family court, probate court, or dependency court as a person with a criminal record.

  • Filling out court forms or writing declarations.

  • Understanding your rights as a parent, caregiver, or someone interested in fostering or adopting.

  • Reviewing parole conditions or stay-away orders that relate to family members.

  • Divorce, separation, or nullity court forms.

  • Parentage (paternity) court forms.

  • Other family law issues.

Please note: Our assistance at this clinic will be limited to day-of support. We will not be taking on representation of clients in court.


Appointments are not necessary but are highly recommended.

Sign up for an appointment here!
