Mississippi Access to Justice Commission

Justice for All

The Mississippi Legislature

The Mississippi Legislature has declared June Access to Justice month.  Free family law legal clinics are being organized in every Chancery Court District in Mississippi to assist those in need of civil legal aid.  The clinics will assist individuals with custody and child support issues, divorces, guardianships, name change matters, emancipations, adoptions and domestic violence protection orders.  Volunteer attorneys will be present to meet with self-represented litigants to provide advice, assistance with forms and pleadings and instructions on how to resolve the cases.  A list of the upcoming clinics may be found at https://courts.ms.gov/Newsite2/Legal/CivilLegal.php.
