The LAC is Reopening!
Starting on Monday, July 6, 2020 you can once again get help in person at the Legal Assistance Center. Initially, open hours will be limited to 10 am to 2 pm from Monday to Friday.

For your safety and the safety of our staff and volunteers, you will be required to wear a mask or face covering to enter the courthouse and to get help at the LAC. To promote social distancing we will be limiting the number of people in the LAC.

If you are not feeling well, have a fever, or have been exposed to someone who has or may have COVID-19, please stay home and be well. You can still get help by phone by calling 616-632-6000. You will be asked to leave a message and we will return your call as soon as we can.
School and Summer Parenting Time and Child Support Policy in Kent County

School and Summer Parenting Time and Child Support Policy in Kent County

The Kent County Family Division of the Circuit Court issued a policy on April 9, 2020 stating that with in-person K-12 school suspended, parenting time and child support orders in Kent County will be consistently interpreted as follows:

School/Summer Parenting Time

For the purpose of school year and summer parenting time, the school year will continue through the original date that the child’s school would have ended under the school district’s calendar.

Uniform Child Support Orders

For the purpose of a child support order, any child who is a senior in high school for the 2019-2020 school year and was attending school full time prior to March 10, 2020 will be considered to have been attending high school through the originally scheduled graduation date set by the school district.

If you need help or have questions, call the Legal Assistance Center at 616-632-6000.
