Giles Law Group

This program is designed to prepare volunteer attorneys who provide representation to low-income clients at the Knox County Legal Clinic and other brief advice legal clinics coordinated by Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (SEOLS). While there will be some discussion of local domestic relations practice in Knox County, the information should be relevant to all general brief advice clinics in the SEOLS service area.
The program will also focus on recent changes to Ohio’s child support guidelines. House Bill 366, which was signed by Governor Kasich on June 29, 2018, updates Ohio’s child support guidelines for the first time in over 25 years. The changes modify the child support calculations, child support tables, and healthcare coverage guidelines. The changes also implement new parenting time adjustments to child support orders. Learn more about these changes and how they will affect your practice.
A Knox County Legal Clinic will immediately follow the CLE at 5:00 p.m. at the Mulberry Street United Methodist Church, 205 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon. The CLE is free for any attorney who agrees to volunteer at Knox County Interfaith Clinics or at other SEOLS sponsored clinics.
