Family Law

The Family Law Unit provides legal assistance in family law matters. A significant number of the Unit’s clients are domestic violence survivors.

We offer a full range of services, which may include advice and counsel, preparation of pleadings, discovery and court representation.  We work with an extensive network of domestic violence shelters and social service agencies to provide holistic services for our clients

Specifically, the Unit provides legal advocacy in family law matters including:

  • Dissolution of marriage
  • Child Custody and Visitation
  • Child Support
  • Establishment of paternity
  • Family Law Restraining Orders
  • Probate Guardianship of minor children

When arising in relation to these family law matters, LACLJ’s Family Law Unit also handles spousal support and division of community property.

To make an appointment for services, please call (323) 980-3500.  Geographic and income restrictions may apply based on funding sources and we may not be able to provide assistance to everyone.
