Family Law Clinic

Over half of all civil filings in Florida are family law cases, and half of those do not have legal representation. The Family Law Clinic serves low income clients with a wide range of family law issues. Working with all types of cases that a family law firm might encounter, the clinic is able to provide students with experience handling dissolution of marriage, custody, visitation, injunctions against violence, paternity, modifications and contempt of court cases. Clinical Professor Ruth Stone directs the activities of the Family Law Clinic.
