Family Law Day of Court Clinic Volunteer Training

  • 10/25/2016
  • 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM
  • Alameda County Bar Association, 1000 Broadway, Ste. 480, Oakland, CA 94607

At the Family Law Day of Court Clinic (FLDOC), volunteers take referrals from the bench to assist self-represented litigants on the Request for Order calendar. Volunteers prepare Findings and Order After Hearing and Reissuances, provide information and referrals to local resources, and explain court procedures such as service of process. The goal is for litigants to leave court with signed, enforceable orders in hand.

This training will cover how to prepare Findings and Order After Hearing for common legal issues faced by litigants representing themselves in family law cases, including child custody and visitation and child support. We will also discuss reissuances and service of process, issues that come up frequently for pro per litigants on the RFO calendar.

Volunteer Commitment:
This training is offered for free in exchange for commitment to volunteer at six Family Law Day of Court sessions in the next year.
