Family Law Legal Assistance

America Family Law Center strives to provide family law help and assistance to individuals needing help resolving various family situations.  Many situations involve family law and parental rights. The organization’s primary focus is on children and their relationships with their parents.  Understanding how to navigate a divorce, child custody, child visitation, child support, and parental rights can be overwhelming.  We are here to help.

The organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. Its mission is rooted in the belief that children should have a loving relationship with both parents.  Loving relationships between children and parents can continue after divorce or separation.  When children are parented safely and lovingly by both parents, our society and communities will be better off.

The organization has had recent clients residing in all 50 states. With our advanced use of technology, we can provide our service to people, regardless of location, from the comfort and privacy of their homes via phone and internet access.

America Family Law Center desires to resolve as many situations as possible without litigation or court involvement.

America Family Law Center encourages those who qualify for and are granted access to free legal assistance from another legal aid organization or law firm to take advantage of that free assistance. America Family Law Center encourages those who have the money to hire a full-service attorney in a traditional manner to do so. America Family Law Center is here to assist those pro-se and self-represented litigants in family law cases who do not get free legal aid and cannot afford to pay a traditional full-service attorney thousands of dollars, those in the Justice Gap.

Justice Gap - America Family Law Center

When America Family Law Center was founded, it was modeled using the same guiding principles that are fundamental to the American Bar Association (ABA) Standard for the Provision of Civil Legal Aid. America Family Law Center tracks closely with the ABA’s guidance on limited-scope representation (see ABA Standard 3.4), legal advice (see ABA Standard 3.4-1 & 3.4-2), and assistance to pro-se or self-represented litigants (see ABA Standard 3.5) in family law matters and incorporates this with the effective use of technology (see ABA Standard 2.10).
