A: This type of question is generally best answered by going to the courthouse itself. I've not been to Pasadena/Chatsworth courthouse before, but many family courthouses in California have lists of agencies who will refer you to free or discounted lawyers. These are sometimes run by that county's bar association. Family law pro bono in California is pretty difficult to come by, though. There are a lot of people who need it and the cases are generally routine. Contesting supervised visitation sounds like it will be a lot of work also. Cases that are easy/quick are more likely to get picked for pro bono services.

If you're actually in Georgia, then it will be very difficult to actually go to the courthouse. If you have someone local in Pasadena/Chatsworth who can help you get a list of these agencies, that would be helpful.
