MetroWest Legal Services and Community Legal Aid are proud to co-sponsor:

Divorce Basics Training Seminar


There are many ways to help during these unprecedented times. People can sew masks, deliver groceries to vulnerable community members, donate blood, BUT only attorneys can assist with legal matters.

In addition to the loss of income and financial instability, many individuals in our community are also experiencing a breakdown of their marriages and families along with an increase in domestic violence.  Your abilities as an attorney can significantly reduce the mounting stress for these individuals and help those who have already been hit hardest by this pandemic.

MetroWest Legal Services is offering a FREE* five-part Divorce Training Program that will provide you with the basics in Divorce Law. Not only will this training allow you to deepen your skills for your private practice but you will also become part of the solution to the COVID 19 pandemic. 

WHEN: Monday & Wednesday, August 17,19,24,26 and 31st from 4:30-6:30 pm

WHERE: Video-conference (A link will emailed to participants upon registration)

PANELISTS: A panel of experienced Divorce Attorneys and Family Court Judges will guide you through the divorce process.
