This legal service will provide individuals with legal advice and court documents prepared by licensed Mississippi attorneys on the following matters: Uncontested Guardianship; Emancipation; Irreconcilable Differences Divorce (No Fault Divorce); Child Support Modification; and Expungement for misdemeanors only. Participants will also receive instructions on how to represent themselves in court. The family law legal clinic is free to the participant.
