Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now.
Are you asking where to find a pro bono (free) family lawyer in Alaska?
Thanks for the reply, but I am not sure what your question is.
Are you asking where to find a pro bono (free) family lawyer in Alaska to assist with this adoption?
Every state has agencies that offer pro bono assistance to civil litigants. Your state has a volunteer agency in Anchorage that handles adoption issues for free. Even if you could not get a lawyer to handle the matter directly, you would want hands on advice before filing anything yourself with the courts. Here's the information that I have for your state.
Also you can check out area law schools if there’s one near you.. They typically would have a family law clinic which would take on cases for people in the community and which are either free or have a sliding fee scale. Law students handle actual cases for course credit under the supervision of a professor/lawyer.
Many of these have fine reputations and if a lawyer is needed to go to court on the matter, the professor handles the case before the judge.
Again, you may have to make a lot of phone calls, but in the end you should be able to get some hands-on assistance.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
