The Northeastern Judicial Circuit Family Law Information Center (FLIC) provides assistance to individuals filing in or living in Hall and Dawson Counties who plan to represent themselves in divorce or legitimation cases. FLIC also has resources and information for other family law matters.
All of the information listed on this site is referred to as “Self Help” information. As with all legal matters, it is strongly recommended that you obtain the services of an attorney. Any mistakes, whether intentionally or inadvertently made, can have very serious and costly consequences for both you and your family members.
FLIC offers free, limited help to people representing themselves in divorce or legitimation actions. Before filing your divorce or legitimation, it is strongly recommended you get the advice or representation of a lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer, and you must represent yourself, call FLIC for assistance.
