The Free Legal Aid Clinic has proudly served the Detroit community for over 50 years. Our intake days are for divorce, custody, and child support.

Intake for family law matters take place every other Wednesday at 9:00am.  Please call before coming or check the intake schedule on this page of FLAC’s website:

 We pass out applications for the intake process starting at 9:00 am. We suggest arriving before 9:00 am, as applications are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. We trust intake clients to line-up in the order they arrived. Arriving by 9:00 am does not guarantee that you will be accepted for an intake. Once we reach capacity, we will not see any more clients and you will have to come back on a different day. Coming to an intake does not guarantee that you will be seen, or that we will be able to accept your case for full litigation.  Please call our office ahead of time for more details at: (313)833-0058.
