Milwaukee Bar Association Foundation
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
This proposal will place twenty-five minimum time AmeriCorps members in the Milwaukee County Courthouse to support unrepresented litigants. Members will provide legal information on the family law court process and assistance with filling out court forms. After each instance of service, unrepresented litigants will have accurately completed form(s) which will enable them to continue toward a resolution of their legal matter, and a better understanding of the court process. Family law matters are substantially tied to financial stability. The inability to resolve these matters impacts not only the family, but also society as a whole.
