|The Center was established as the pioneer legal aid center in Korea in 1956 and since that time has continued to work to protect those in need through free legal counseling.
In order to solve domestic problems through legal solutions, counselors and lawyers at the Center provide legal counseling, mediation, preparation of documents and legal representation, when necessary at the courts ? all free of charge. In addition, as one of several counseling centers designated by the Family Court, the Center offers specific counseling for offenders in cases of domestic violence.
To educate about and prevent family problems, the Center has an educational department, which endeavors to raise awareness on domestic conflict issues through a variety of programs.
Likewise, in an effort to extend the network of the Center domestically as well as internationally, the Center has established branches in various areas of Korea and in the United States.
The Center is also actively involved in movements to revise Korea’s discriminatory family laws, often based in long-held customs that create gender and spouse discrimination and other family problems. These efforts are geared for creating an atmosphere where improved family relations for all can thrive.
