family law assistance network
The Family Law Assistance Network (FLAN) is a network of lawyers providing rapid-response, limited scope legal assistance to unrepresented DC family law litigants from lower-household incomes. FLAN is a network comprised of attorneys from DC Affordable Law Firm, the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, and the Legal Aid Society of DC.
Community members interested in accessing FLAN’s services in DC child custody, child support, or divorce matters can contact (202) 844-5428 or submit an online request via email to FLANReferrals@dcaffordablelaw.org. FLAN’s Intake Line is staffed from 9:00-3:00 Monday through Friday. FLAN aims to link eligible litigants with an attorney within 48 hours or two business days.
FLAN’s work has been highlighted by The Washington Council of Lawyers and in the D.C. Bar’s Washington Lawyer magazine.
