Do you need help with settling a small estate in Bexar County?

Walk-in assistance is available to qualifying applicants every other Thursday from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. Click here for a calendar of upcoming Small Estate Clinics.

Applicants are encouraged to bring all relevant documents, including the related death certificate and information about the estate.

Based at the Bexar County Courthouse, streamlines the service engagement process for domestic violence victims and perpetrators involved with the judiciary and legal system, CPS, and the military.

In Texas, an expunction means the Court destroys all records of both the arrest and any court proceedings, so they can’t ever be found on any government-maintained database by anyone. Any record of the expunction also gets destroyed. It’s like the arrest (and the expunction) never happened.

In order to receive an expunction, a Petition must be filed with a court that has jurisdiction requesting that all records pertaining to a specific offense(s) be destroyed. If a court finds a petitioner is entitled to an expunction they will issue an Order granting the expunction.

In Texas, you can expunge an arrest as long as you didn't get convicted or receive some type of community supervision. You can also expunge a Class C Misdemeanor if you've completed a deferred adjudication (probation, treatment, or community service).

TRLA partners with medical providers in San Antonio as part of a national effort to improve the health and wellbeing of low-income people by combining the expertise of attorneys and medical practitioners. Our Medical-Legal Partnership program (MLP)-part of the National Center for Medical-Legal Partnerships-operates in recognition that poor health is linked to poverty and related problems such as substandard housing and inadequate education. In fact, research has established that about 60 percent of an individual's health is determined by social and economic factors such as personal and family stability, income and health insurance, immigration status, housing and utilities, and education and employment. As such, TRLA's MLP staff work with their medical partners-both hospitals and health clinics-to identify the legal problems that compromise the health of their patients. Once TRLA's medical partners have referred patients for free legal services, MLP staff work to resolve adverse legal and administrative problems to the benefit of both the clients and their families.

Medical-Legal Assistance for Families (MLAF) operates as a partnership between TRLA, the Children's Hospital of San Antonio, and the Baylor College of Medicine's Pediatric Residency Program at the Children's Hospital. Under the partnership, TRLA accepts patients for legal assistance by referral from the two pediatrics departments. TRLA also accepts referrals from the pediatrics department at UT Health San Antonio. Our legal priority areas are education, housing, public benefits, and guardianships for children transitioning to adulthood.

In partnership with St. Mary’s University School of Law Pro Bono Program and Texas Law, Pride Center San Antonio's Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program offers gender marker and name change clinics for transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals. The project aims to assist people in aligning the gender presented on their government identifications, driver’s licenses, and other documents with how they identify.

Changing one’s identification to align with who they know themselves to be is a major milestone and affirmation of their identity. These corrections have the potential to curb discrimination, violence, and having to be outed as transgender every time they have to present their ID.

Email The Center for assistance in changing your gender marker. 

Free legal counsel; some documentation fees may apply.

Advocacy:

We advocate for the systemic changes needed within the institutions of the community to effectively respond to these needs.

We challenge law enforcement when they deviate from departmental policy in response to family violence calls. Advocate on how city dollars are spent in terms of effective response from community agencies.

The judicial system as a vital link in dealing effectively with domestic violence, the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative has worked to improve the criminal and civil response to domestic violence. During October, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative plans, designs and implements events and activities in a citywide effort to create awareness, get community involved, in eradicating the violence in families. 

Coalition Building:

We work to engage community members in discussions about the effects of family violence on family members and the community as a whole.

We are training them to know what to expect from law enforcement in terms of laws, safety, protections, resources and their rights which they in turn will teach other community residents.

We have learned that most survivors of family violence seek help with those people closest to them, therefore it is imperative we build a community consciousness of awareness, accountability and response.

This way that community member, will know what to say, how to respond, and where to send survivors of family violence for the appropriate help and support.
