    The CHBA and the CBA's Spanish Speaking Lawyers Committee have partnered with Project Safeguard to provide free divorce and allocation of parental rights clinics to Spanish-speaking victims of domestic violence. 

    Volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and law students help participants by explaining domestic forms and procedure, giving legal information, and providing referrals to free legal resources.  No family law experience is required, but volunteers must be able to speak Spanish conversationally.  The clinic is led by an experienced attorney, who provides support for new volunteers.

    If you would like to volunteer or obtain more information about the clinics, please register online.  If you have any additional questions, please email psg.clinic@gmail.com.
