VLP Success Stories
A participant in the VLP Family Law section shares her experience with the VLP...
CLEAR connected me to the Volunteer Lawyers Program, and I was able to set up an appointment. The first time I met with the volunteer was the first time in a long time that I felt hope, and I knew I would make it through this. She spent hours helping me get all of my paperwork in order, preparing me for what to expect, and coaching me on how to represent myself at trial. She answered any and all questions no matter how silly they may have been.

"I attended my case status hearing and was not sure what to expect. Fortunately I was able to figure out the forms needed to complete my divorce, and brought the completed forms with me. I had them mostly completed correctly, minus a couple small items. The VLP volunteer helped to fix the errors, and I left divorced. Very helpful!" - EM
