Some news from my State Bar colleague Alberto Rodriguez:
On Tuesday, September 2, volunteer lawyers offered their time to answer family law questions as part of the State Bar’s successful Lawyers on Call program.
Those volunteer attorneys answered 96 calls on family law issues—66 of which were addressed via social media. That resulted in a total of 162 people who were helped.
Two of the eight attorneys were first-time volunteers.
Attorneys received a wide variety of consumer questions. Among them:
- How can I enforce a child support order? Can I modify a current child support order?
- How can I terminate child support?
- Do I have to allow for parenting time if I’m receiving child support?
- What should I do if I can’t locate my child’s parent to request child support?
- Do I have any rights as a grandparent?
- Can I file for a divorce if my spouse doesn’t want to?
- Can I file bankruptcy if I’m going through a divorce?
- How do I enforce a divorce decree?
Social media has increased in popularity during the years Lawyers on Call has been in place. On September 2, 75 consumers asked their questions via the 12 News Facebook page, 66 of which attorneys Heidi Lukacsik and Margo Shorr responded to with their recommendations/advice.
Next month, volunteer lawyers will answer consumers’ bankruptcy and foreclosure questions on Tuesday, October 7.Follow @azatty
