Judicare Family Law Project – Paid Opportunities for Attorneys

The Judicare Family Law Project, a partnership between MLSC and the Administrative Office of the Courts, provides payment to private lawyers to serve low-income Marylanders who could not otherwise afford representation in contested family law cases. Case types include custody, divorce and other contested family law matters.

Effective April 1, 2022, attorneys receive $120 per hour for up to 35 hours per case. They also receive support of litigation expenses, training and mentoring support, all while making a difference for a low-income family in need.

How to Participate: Judicare is available throughout Maryland. Contact an organization listed below that is administering Judicare in your jurisdiction. Case types and participation requirements may vary with each organization.
