CLS does not handle cases relating to Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support or Protection from Abuse Orders. If you are looking for advice or representation in one of those matters, contact Philadelphia Legal Assistance (PLA) for more information.
As of April 18, 2016, The Family Law Unit at Philadelphia Legal Assistance will no longer be conducting intake for child and spousal support. Parties may view their “Make Your Case Videos” for information on child and spousal support, as well as custody and protection from abuse, which may be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLS-mVf1YKEvIpXxGlMyLZjItgTptSVOAA. More resources, including self-guided forms, may be found at http://www.palawhelp.org/issues/children-and-families
PLA will continue to have telephone intake for custody and protection from abuse on Mondays through Thursdays from 9:30 am to noon at 215-981-3838.
