Preparing For Clinic Appointments:

Clinic appointments are about 30 minutes long. Clients will want to be prepared in advance of the appointment so to fully use the time as effectively as possible. Here are some things to do before coming to an appointment:

  • Organize and bring any important papers including court document or letters
  • Make child care arrangements prior to coming and if possible do not bring children to the appointment

**Please Note: Clients will need to bring their own interpreter if required.
