with Legal Aid Chicago

The greatest need, the fewest attorneys.


Obtaining a divorce often can be an important first step in moving on from a difficult or even dangerous situation.  Many people do not pursue divorce, however, because they feel overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork, the fees, and the prospect of handling "legalese" on their own.   

PBN is making a dent in this dire need. PBN volunteer attorneys meet with clients, complete all court filings, and represent clients during hearings in front of a domestic relations judge.
