Self Help Divorce Clinic


Are you filing for divorce?

Are you representing yourself because you cannot afford an attorney?

Do you and your spouse agree to the divorce?


We can help. Apply for our Self Help Divorce Clinic, and meet with a volunteer attorney, one-on-one, to prepare the documents you need to complete your own divorce.

WHEN:         Fourth Friday of Each Month (except December)

TIME:  By Appointment, from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM

WHERE:       HARRIS COUNTY LAW LIBRARY (1019 Congress Avenue)


To be eligible for the program, (1) you and/or spouse cannot own a house or other land properties AND (2) the wife did not have any children born during the marriage or after the separation (unless there is a prior court order establishing custody for the children).  If we learn during the clinic that you do not qualify, we will have to cancel your appointment, as we cannot provide you with the necessary assistance in these types of cases on this day.  If you do not qualify for the Self Help Clinic, please attend one of our legal advice clinics for assistance.  For our upcoming clinics, visit our events page.

If your case qualifies, a Houston Volunteer Lawyers staff member will call you to confirm that you qualify and are financially eligible for our program and to schedule your clinic appointment.
