Who We Serve

Family Legal Care provides unrepresented litigants with free legal services on cases involving child support, custody and visitation, paternity, guardianship, and domestic violence.

Our clients are mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers, sisters and guardians who care. On top of often grueling work schedules and difficult family situations, they come to us to learn about family law and how to best advocate for themselves and their families in court; they come to provide the children in their lives with a safe home, economic security and emotional stability.

Justice for all. One family at a time.

In an average year, there are 600,000 filings in New York State Family Court. 8 in 10 litigants have no lawyer. Justice can feel out of reach. Family Legal Care is here to help.

Thank you. Your hard work and care have helped restore more than financial damage. You are truly a gem.
