About Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project

MVLP currently assists clients with civil legal matters, primarily in the following areas: uncontested divorces, emancipations, simple wills, adoptions, guardianships, name changes, birth certificate corrections, child support contempt matters, child support modifications, conservatorships and visitation matters. Eligibility for MVLP’s services is determined by federal poverty guidelines, including income and assets and citizenship status.  Eligibility is further determined by the organization's thorough review and  assessment of a prospective client's legal matter for rejection or acceptance. Potential MVLP clients are screened by MVLP’s staff to determine whether they qualify for MVLP’s services. If a potential client qualifies for MVLP’s services, the client is matched with a volunteer attorney who will represent him/her on behalf of MVLP. MVLP clients have cases in the following areas: uncontested divorce, removal of minority/emancipation, wills, adoption, guardianship, name change, birth certificate correction, child support contempt, child support modification, conservatorship and visitation.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
