The Legal Aid Society of Hawai‘i will be offering free legal information presentations on Friday, May 5, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Jerry Nelson Conference Room, located in the W. M. Keck Observatory.
Topics to be covered include: Divorce, Custody, Visitation, and Child Support (10:00 a.m.); Kupuna Legal Issues, including Wills, Advanced Healthcare Directives, Powers of Attorney, and Guardianships (11:00 a.m.); Vital Documents and Health Insurance (11:30 a.m.); SSI/SSDI (1:30 p.m.); and Housing, including Landlord-Tenant, Foreclosure, and Reverse Mortgage (2:00 p.m.).
No appointments are needed, and all presentations are open to the public; however, the public is asked to keep in mind that only legal information, not legal advice can be shared during the presentations. For individuals wanting to apply for Legal Aid’s services, staff members will be on-site to assist with submitting an application.
“Our goal is to try to make this information more accessible to members of the community, especially for those who may not live near our Hilo or Kona offices,” says Hawai‘i Island Managing Attorney, Scott Shishido. “During stakeholder interviews, we repeatedly heard that it would be nice if Legal Aid was out in the community more; this is an effort to respond to those requests.”
The Jerry Nelson Conference Room is within the W. M. Keck Observatory, located at 65-1120 Mamalahoa Highway, Kamuela, Hawai‘i 96743.
