If your case involves child support, custody, or visitation and you are not represented by an attorney, you may want to meet with LIFT’s court-based Court Consultation staff for one-on-one help and strategy sessions. You will be teamed up with one of our attorneys and they can help you practice what you’ll be presenting to the judge, explain court documents and court orders, and refer you to other resources in your community. Staff will even go with you to Family Court or other public agencies, such as the HRA Support Collection Unit, in case you need emotional support or have questions afterward.
All services are free and we are available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call 212-343-1122 to schedule an appointment.
