RALEIGH – Legal Aid of North Carolina, a civil legal aid organization that provides free legal help to low-income people, will broadcast a free, interactive, do-it-yourself divorce clinic at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 19 to locations in 14 cities across the state.
The clinics are designed to empower participants to file for a simple divorce without full-service legal representation. A simple divorce does not involve contested child custody, equitable distribution of assets or other complex legal issues. Legal Aid attorneys provide participants with all the necessary legal forms and provide basic instructions for filling out and filing them. The clinics also include question-and-answer sessions.
Legal Aid attorneys conduct the clinics from a central location in the Triangle and broadcast them to locations across the state using interactive webcast software. The clinics are held on the third Thursday of every month, although there will not be one in December.
Every clinic is completely free but registration is required because space is limited. Please call the toll-free Legal Aid Helpline at 1-866-219-5262 to register.
Here is the list of locations for the Nov. 19 clinic. Locations may differ for future clinics.
