VLP has a long history of representing people seeking, as well as defending, a divorce. VLP’s team of in-house and volunteer attorneys relieve a great deal of stress for clients by handling divorces on a pro bono basis. VLP primarily assists low-income clients who fall through the gaps created by other programs’ rules.
To apply for assistance with a divorce, please call (716) 847-0662 ext. 324 to set up an appointment. Please leave your name, phone number and a brief message explaining your legal concern. We will contact you within 3 business days to begin screening your case. Initial review of your case will occur over the telephone, and will include financial eligibility screening and gathering of relevant information.
Due to the nature of divorce cases, please be aware that it can take several months before your case is referred to an attorney to begin the divorce process. Please be advised, VLP does not assist with cases that have already been filed in court.
Due to limited resources, VLP is only accepting divorce defendants on a very limited basis. To see if we are able to take your case, please contact (716) 847-0662 ext. 324. Be sure to include in your message that you have been served with divorce papers.
Clients are not seen without an appointment.
