Before you see Supreme Court duty counsel

Before you go to the family duty counsel office, it’s a good idea to read and complete an Acknowledgement of Duty Counsel Services form. The acknowledgement form tells you what the lawyer can do for you, and gives the lawyer permission to share your information with LSS for evaluation or audit purposes.

If you give the completed form to the lawyer when you first meet, the lawyer can spend more time providing you with legal advice.
