A: Unfortunately, there are not many options for pro bono attorneys for family law cases. There may be some agencies in your area that offer pro bono or low bono legal services.

A: Try contacting the state bar to see if they know of any pro bono attorneys in your area. If there are some in your area, they should be able to provide you their information. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com

A: Even if you can't afford a retainer of an attorney to represent your interests in this matter, and an attorney certainly can help you, some attorneys offer consultations for a fee that will give you guidance as to what steps you may take without an attorney to represent you in court. Good luck.
