Q: Where can I find a probono attorney in the collin county area?
I have looked up several and none of them are actually probomo
If you can't afford a lawyer, your best bet may be to ask the court to appoint you an attorney. Typically the court will want you to fill out some paperwork swearing that you are indigent (have no money). Very few attorneys advertise themselves as "pro bono" and I think you are unlikely to find an attorney to work on your case for free that way. Good luck to you.
You may try the Collin County Bar Association. They may have a program that family law attorneys in that area use to provide pro bono representation in certain family law cases.
Absent a program as described above, most Family Law attorneys do not provide pro bono services.
Unless you have had an enforcement/contempt action filed against you in a current family law case, you are NOT entitled to a court appointed attorney. If it is any other type of family law case, you will either have to hire an attorney or represent yourself "pro se" (if you cannot find a pro bono attorney).
I hope this information helps. Good luck to you.
