Advice On Family Law At FilCom Center

In association with Volunteer Legal Services, FilCom Center will present Know Your Legal Rights – And Civic Duties from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 6.

The forum, which is hosted by Volunteer Legal Services senior staff attorney Michelle D. Acosta and Domestic Violence Action Center lawyer Philip Dureza, will cover topics that include legal advice for divorce, child custody, visitation or child support, guardianship rules for relatives, court interventions, wills, trusts and powers of attorney, Social Security, welfare and more.

Family law can often be a long and grueling process, especially if there are accusations of domestic abuse, assault or adultery so getting legal advice, getting to know where you stand and what your rights are is an important thing to do. It can give your an advantage in your case which could result in a much better custody agreement or divorce terms.

Acosta has worked in family law and domestic violence cases and now manages the legal services division at Volunteer Legal Services. Dureza has a background in immigration and housing law, and currently represents victims of domestic violence and other family law cases.

Volunteer Legal Services is a nonprofit that serves low-to-moderate income clients.

The FilCom Center is located at 94-480 Mokuola St. in Waipahu. For more information or to register, call 680-0451.
