Step Further Program.
One Step Further’s mission is to provide free legal services to qualifying teenage parents who, due to lack of resources, have no access to the services of an attorney.
The One Step Further Program operates in a series of three steps:
STEP 1 :
General information group sessions are held for for teen parents. A lawyer who can explain the law and answers general questions will lead the discussions.
STEP 2 :
Teens who qualify as low-income and who have their parent or guardian’s permission, can meet with a lawyer for one-on-one confidential counsel and advice.
STEP 3 :
In certain cases, a lawyer will prepare the necessary legal papers and/or represent a young parent in court once the teen’s legal guardian files the prepared documents.
