#23/31 Days of Giving- Legal Information for Families Today – Musings of an NYC Dermatologist

“No one ever imagines that they will end up in Family Court,” reads some of the literature for LIFT (Legal Information for Families Today). LIFT is an organization that provides resources to people who are advocating for themselves in family court in New York City. Some people advocate for themselves because they cannot afford an attorney. Some advocate for themselves because they see that family court is highly corrupt and that they will get better advocacy without an attorney who is part of the system and has a financial interest to drag out their case. Either way, LIFT provides support by teaching participants about their rights and options, and helps guide them through the process. One never knows when one might be involved in a family court case. That is why today Aglow Dermatology shows gratitude to LIFT for being a fierce stand for families trying to work their own way out of the Kafkaesque maze of NYC family court.
