Families Living Violence Free is proud to partner with Legal Aid of North Carolina to bring Granville County and surrounding areas FREE Self-Help Clinics.
Legal Aid of North Carolina’s free do-it-yourself legal clinics educate people about their rights and empower them to handle certain basic legal issues without the help of a lawyer. Participants receive all the guidance and paperwork necessary to walk out of the clinic and into the courthouse. Clinics are hosted monthly or quarterly at Legal Aid offices, churches, community centers and other locations throughout North Carolina. All clinics are completely free, but advance registration is required due to space limitations at most locations. Participants receive general legal information only. No specific advice is given on individual cases.

SIMPLE DIVORCE CLINIC
Legal Aid of North Carolina’s free simple divorce clinic teaches participants how to file a simple divorce action in court without hiring an attorney.
Please note: Filing for divorce affects your rights to property division, spousal support, and alimony. You could lose important rights by filing for divorce. If you wish to pursue property division, spousal support, or alimony, you should consult with a private attorney to discuss your legal rights before filing. You are welcome to attend the clinic for general information, but the clinic does NOT specifically address these issues.
If you move to escape abuse, you can join the Address Confidentiality Program and have your first-class mail sent to a substitute address chosen by the Attorney General’s office. We forward your mail to you and keep your new address secret.
You can also use the substitute address to register to vote, get a driver license, or sign up for utilities like water and electricity.
We honor families as the life of our community – where dreams are born, children are nurtured and adults find purpose. Because many members of our community who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are denied these rights to quality of life and to basic human dignity, Families Living Violence Free is dedicated to empowering Granville County families to live safe, non-violent lives.
