I am looking for a child custody attorney in Allegheny County. I have a limited income and I am looking for a pro bono, low-cost, or one that will accept payments. Programs to assist in obtaining a lawyer? I do not want to go into court without an attorney.
I suggest you search among the profiles of the attorneys here on Avvo for someone in your area. I am sure you will find some who will accept a payment plan. Good luck!
All of Ms. Brown's responses to questions posted on AVVO are intended as general information based upon the facts stated in the question, and are provided for educational purposes of the public, not any specific individual, and her response to the question above is not legal advice and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Brown is licensed to practice law in New York. If you would like to obtain specific legal advice about this issue, you must contact an attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state.
I agree with my colleagues. I write only to add that you could also try the local bar association or legal aid in your county. These places can be great resources, especially for family law matters where one party has low income. Also, payment plans are very common practices. Good Luck.
