A Guide to Free, Online Family Law Resources


Several weeks ago, a Charlotte School of Law student asked about free, online resources related to family law. The list below includes websites, blogs, and listservs.

Since the Charlotte School of Law will be closed to public patrons and attorney members until we are in our new location, we thought these resources might be of particular interest. Family law is always a popular topic.
