About the Clinic

The Pro–Se–Plus Divorce Clinic is a two–session workshop conducted each month at D.C. Superior Court to assist unrepresented litigants in obtaining uncontested divorces. Clinics are held during non–business hours, usually on two consecutive Saturday mornings or Tuesday evenings.

During Session I, volunteer instructors teach Clinic participants about the grounds for divorce, basic marital property/debt, alimony, child custody and child support issues, filing requirements, contested versus uncontested divorces, service of process issues, absent defendants, and default proceedings. Instructors will also conduct a mock uncontested divorce hearing.

During Session II, volunteer instructors assist participants with filling out required forms and pleadings and answer individual questions. Participants who discover contested matters will be provided additional information and referrals whenever possible.


The clinic is conducted by volunteer instructors who have attended a three–hour training session. Volunteers work in teams of three to five instructors led by an experienced family law practitioner to teach clinic participants about D.C. divorce law and civil procedure using a curriculum and teaching materials developed and provided by the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program. Volunteers must be attorneys or paralegals, but need not be licensed to practice law. Volunteers may sign up to teach the clinic as frequently or infrequently as they wish. Training sessions for new volunteers are held once per year at the D.C. Bar.

He left me in 95 .He married someone without divorcing me. I was told we were divorced. Ignorant as I am I waited for a decree but when husband #2 came into the picture the notary who married us said it isn't important to prove I am divorced she took me on my word. I thought I was divorced. He since then ,husband # 1 has a child and divided his property between him and his fake second wife. I am told to walk away from this and start new because I wont get alimony
