LSNF’s services help families rebuild their lives and become self-sustaining, contributing citizens in our communities.
LSNF handles some family law matters where the situation may threaten the security or the viability of a family. LSNF may handle the following types of cases: paternity, adoption, name change, and some guardianships. LSNF also handles dissolution of marriage cases where abuse is present. For more information on divorces, please see the Domestic/Sexual Violence services pages. Each case is reviewed on its own legal merits for case acceptance.
LSNF strives to provide holistic services to clients which address not only their legal needs, and collaborates with social service and case management providers to address broader client needs. Our volunteer and staff lawyers provide counsel, advice or full representation to clients. Many times our lawyers will identify other legal issues where we may provide assistance such as public benefits, housing, or consumer.
