Pro bono lawyer in New Haven County, Connecticut?

New Haven, CT |

How can I get a list of lawyers willing to do pro bono work for family law? I need child support modification and have little money for representation.

I should add that I currently live in Florida. That creates a problem because many legal services will not assist those who live out of state, and legal services in Florida cannot handle cases outside of their county.

Call your local bar association.

Perhaps the court has a self-help desk that can assist you some.

These kinds of family law concerns are not the usual pro bono assignments, though.

Perhaps you can hire a lawyer that will be willing to allow you to pay a little now and pay off legal services over time.


In many jurisdictions, the Clerk of the Court will have a list of local clinics, and organizations that provide pro bono assistance. Good luck with that.


You should contact Statewide Legal Services toll-free at: 1-800-453-3320. Hopefully they can either help you or refer you to someone who can. Good luck to you.
