Child Custody Pro Bono Lawyer

Rahway, NJ |
Filed under: Child custody

I have full custody of my 10 y/o daughter. I received letter mail stating her father wants full custody. He hardly takes her and when he does she ends up with is mother or his sister. Where can I find a lawyer that will take my case pro bono?

Pro Bono means for the public good. A private custody dispute most likely does not qualify.

You might contact the legal aid section of your local Bar Association or courthouse to see if affordable legal services are something you qualify to obtain.

Meanwhile, you are right to seek legal counsel. The concerns about the best interests of your daughter are too important for you to try and defend yourself Pro Se.

NJ does not offer such a legal service. You should contact your local bar association for a lawyers' referral program because such attorneys generally discount their rates.
