What are the costs for the services of the Family Law Information Center?

Most of the services are free.  There is a $2.00 fee for some of the legal form packets and instructions to help pay for reproduction costs.  The coin-operated photocopier costs 15¢ per copy.

——————————————————————————–

Are there any restrictions on who can use the Family Law Information Center?

Any resident of the State of Georgia is welcome to visit the Center and get information.  Remember, however, you must file your petition and follow the guidelines of the county that has jurisdiction over your legal issue.

What if the forms and packets of information are not enough to help you resolve your legal issues?

The Family Law Information Center is designed to be of assistance, for the most part, in situations where parties are basically in agreement about what actions they want to take on their family law matters.  In more complex situations, the assistance of a professional, such as an attorney, may be needed to resolve issues where the parties involved are not in agreement.

The Family Law Information Center also provides information on many community programs and resources, such as:

Atlanta Legal Aid Society
Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers
Child Support Enforcement
Family Mediation
Parenting Education Courses
Victims Assistance Programs
