The program also provides service to an indigent former- spouse of a debtor regarding the dischargeability of obligations in the judgment of divorce.  Click here to access additional information.
Referrals to the pro bono program are made at the request of the Bankruptcy Judge assigned to the adversary proceeding or at the written request of the debtor or former-spouse of a debtor. Attorneys who have volunteered their services under this program are then contacted for assignment to the adversary proceeding.
