What is CLC’s Legal Helpline?
Children’s Law Center's Legal Helpline is available during regular business hours to provide information to DC residents and to assist attorneys representing children in DC’s Family Court. Through the Helpline, Children's Law Center attorneys provide legal information, advice and referrals on issues related to our work – child welfare, education, health care access, child custody, guardianship and adoption.
Foster, kinship and adoptive parents seeking legal representation and parents referred by a pediatrician can talk with a Helpline attorney to determine if they are eligible for free representation from Children's Law Center.
Helpline callers with legal questions outside of our areas of expertise are provided with information about other agencies or resources in the DC community that may be of assistance.
Helpline can be reached at 202-467-4900 option 3.
Helpline hours are Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“Children's Law Center is our best organizational partner and we turn to them often for legal guidance and support. When I think of CLC I think of their unique expertise and extensive knowledge, their generosity in sharing that knowledge with our community, and their integrity in conducting this important work. The lives of the children and families they serve are significantly improved because CLC exists.”
