The Family Legal Clinic (FLC) is a registered NGO in the Maldives, which provides pro bono legal counseling services on family law and prevention of domestic violence law. FLC was founded in 2014 in collaboration with Hope for Women.

This pro bono service includes consultations on marriage, divorce proceedings, child custody, maintenance and child support, and domestic violence issues. It is open to all citizens of the Maldives, irrespective of age, gender and island of residence.

Lawyers will provide a 30 minute consultation in family law and domestic violence. The service is available every working day from 9am to 5pm.

Clients can register for consultations through our hotline 9977771 every working day between 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Our facebook page is about promoting our services and community legal education resources and activities to the community. It is not a forum where we can answer questions or queries about the law or about our guidelines but we will respond within 24 hours to any messages, explaining our services and how we can assist.
