TLC offers a new virtual Document Clinic for pre-screened clients. Clients must be self represented (no attorney). Clients sign a “Limited Scope Representation Agreement”Representation Agreement-Document Clinic,  allowing volunteer attorneys to help the client draft documents relating to divorce and custody cases (for example: Temporary Orders, an Order to Show Cause, Alternate Service and Modifications). The client is sent a link. When the client clicks on the link in the email the client will automatically join a virtual session in which the client can see the volunteer attorney, the law student and the TLC attorney. During the clinic the documents are prepared and emailed to the client.

The Representation ends when the documents are complete. The Program Coordinator may follow up to make sure the client didn’t run into barriers when filing the documents and arranging for service of process.
