Shriver Custody Project
This opportunity is open to all CA licensed attorneys in good standing. Training and supervision is provided by Legal Access Alameda. Volunteer attorneys are matched with a low income parent who has a short cause hearing regarding child custody and visitation already set on the court's calendar. The volunteer speaks to the client, reviews relevant court filings, and represents the litigant at the hearing on a limited scope basis. After preparing written orders and making sure the client understands them, the attorney's work for the client is complete. SCP will file a Substitution of Attorney or Notice of Completion of Limited Scope Representation. At this time, SCP occurs every Wednesday afternoon in Department 513 via Blue Jeans videoconference.
12:00 PM to 04:30 PM
Volunteers are needed for Wednesday afternoons
