The Colorado Hispanic Bar Association is pleased to partner with Metro Volunteer Lawyers (MVL) to provide much needed pro bono legal advice to families living at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines.
CHBA and MVL are in need of experienced family law attorneys to assist with a Virtual Post Decree Consultation Program on July 27, 2021, from 1pm-4pm. This program is meant to assist pro se individuals with legal problems that arise after permanent orders have been entered in a Dissolution of Marriage or Allocation of Parental Responsibilities case.
Before the clinic, attorneys are given information about each case in order to prepare to meet with the applicant. At the virtual clinic, breakout rooms will be utilized to allow volunteers to meet with 3 different applicants for one hour each. The main goal of the clinic is to provide meaningful post-decree assistance for people who are representing themselves in ongoing litigation. The scope of representation is limited to the clinic only.
CHBA and Mi Casa Resource Center host a monthly legal clinic every second Tuesday of the month from 6-8 p.m. Due to COVID-19 the clinic is held virtually by Zoom and telephone until further notice.
Volunteers are needed in the following areas:
