Family Law Service Center was established in 1976 by a group of concerned social workers and attorneys. Family Law Service Center started as part of the San Joaquin County Bar Association. Our attorneys are licensed professionals who are members of the State Bar of California. Our focus is helping low income survivors of domestic violence and domestic abuse with divorce and child custody.
