Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina helped with a Pro Se Divorce Clinic sponsored by the South Carolina Bar Foundation and South Carolina Legal Services on Saturday August 25th 2012 in North Charleston, SC. The goal of the pro se divorce clinic is to help prepare people to represent themselves in family court while obtaining a simple divorce. A simple divorce is usually one that is not disputed, uses one year no fault grounds, has no alimony or child custody involved, and contains no other complicated or contested factors. The clinic lasts about an hour in duration and goes over the time length needed to qualify for a no fault ground for divorce, how to get the process started, how to file a complaint, how to properly serve the other spouse, how to fill out a financial declaration, how to go to court for a hearing, and how to properly fill out all the necessary forms. Attorney Michael Van Landingham of South Carolina Legal Services led the pro se clinic while attorney Evan Guthrie contributed to the presentation and answered questions. Mr. Guthrie was on hand to help with the presentation and add his knowledge and experience of family law to those that attended the clinic. Attorney Guthrie was happy to be able to add to a program that helps those in need of obtaining a divorce, but not be able to afford an attorney.

Some people may not know which direction to go or how to get things started and the pro se program helps point attendees in the right direction and allows them to learn how to do things for themselves. There is additional guidance offered by phone contact after the program is completed. The program is possible through the efforts of multiple organizations. The South Carolina Foundation is funded by the money and interest earned in the trust accounts of lawyers and law firms throughout the state and is the philanthropic arm of the South Carolina Bar with a mission to fund the advancement of justice by improving access, education and accountability. South Carolina Legal Services is a non-profit corporation that offers free legal services in a wide variety of civil legal matters to eligible low income residents through satellite offices located throughout the state. Attorney Guthrie looks forward to being able to participate in future pro se clinics in the future and donating his time to help the local community.

Evan Guthrie Law Firm is licensed to practice law throughout the state of South Carolina. The Evan Guthrie Law Firm practices in the areas of estate planning probate wills living trust special needs trusts personal injury accident and divorce and family law and entertainment law.
