Common Questions

Q: Will I be assigned a volunteer attorney to handle my case?

A: Most likely no. The lawyers you meet with are volunteering only for the time of the clinic. However, in some cases, we will try and find a volunteer attorney to represent you.

Q: Can I come to a HELP Clinic more than once?

A: Yes. You may visit as many times as you need in order to resolve your legal issue.

Q: Am I entitled to a court-appointed attorney?

A: No. That is only for criminal cases and for termination of parental rights cases in Family Court, if the judge determines you are indigent.

Q: Can you waive my court fees?

A: No. We are not part of the court system and cannot waive court fees.

Q: Who is responsible for following up on my case?

A: Your case is your responsibility. You are responsible for attending court and follow-up.
