Pro Se Divorce Seminars
If you are filing for your own divorce and need assistance filling out the papers, the Women’s Resource Center, Colorado legal Services, the Southwest Colorado Bar Association and the Southwest Colorado Volunteer Legal Aid offer a free divorce seminar on the second Monday of each month. The clinic runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. This workshop will cover general information about Colorado family law, including divorce and custody. You’ll learn what papers you need to start the action, general procedures, what to look out for, resources, and other information. Instructors do NOT provide legal advice on individual cases. Divorce paperwork is available at the Women’s Resource Center, 679 E. Second Ave., Suite 6, for $5. For more information, call 247-1242 or 247-0266.
Pro Se Divorce Consultations
The Women’s Resource Center offers one-to-one, 60-minute legal consultations with a lawyer for a nominal fee of $20. Consultations are scheduled on the third Monday of the month, and clients are required to attend the Pro Se Divorce Seminar FIRST, before scheduling an appointment with the legal representative. The program has been made possible by a generous grant from the Colorado Bar Foundation. For more information about the service, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 247-1242.
