The Superior Court of Fulton County Family Division in partnership with Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and the Georgia Hispanic Bar Association Wednesday announced a new pilot project beginning Tuesday designed to ad-dress the growing need for legal assistance for the self-represented individuals in family court.

The Fulton County Family Law Clinic will provide legal services to low-income persons, including non-English-speaking litigants, involved in family matters. Under the direction of professor, attorney and association member Bernadette Olmos, third-year law students at Marshall will be actively engaged throughout the year in interviewing clients, completing child support worksheets, assisting unrepresented litigants with paperwork for simple divorces, name changes and legitimization and representing clients at status conferences, mediations, uncontested hearings and temporary protective order hearings.

Beginning Tuesday, the clinic will be held each Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Family Law Information Center located in the Justice Center Tower, Suite T-704 at 185 Central Ave., Atlanta.
