New Custody and Companionship Clinic Launched

New Custody and Companionship Clinic Launched

November 13, 2017
Hamilton County Juvenile Court, Legal Aid Society and the Hamilton County Law Library partnered to create a Custody and Companionship Clinic to improve access to the juvenile justice system for low-income individuals. Specifically, the clinic offers free, enhanced support for those individuals filing on their own for changes in custody or companionship (visitation).

Volunteer lawyers staff the clinic to offer brief, on-the-spot legal advice, including explanations on court procedures, guidance on the evidence needed in court, and assistance in drafting agreements and pleadings. Attorneys interested in volunteering at the clinic can contact Anne Lucas, Managing Attorney of the Volunteer Lawyers Project at alucas@lascinti.org.

The Custody and Companionship Clinic is open Mondays from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M, and Wednesdays, from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. on the first floor of 800 Broadway, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45202. For more information, call the clinic’s hotline at (513) 946-9440.
