CLPHC is hosting a one-day name change event where MCC patients can receive free help with the legal name change process. MCC patients may also use the name change process to legally change gender markers. We hope that this gender-affirming legal service will work in tandem with the care already offered by MCC transgender and gender non-conforming patients.
Who is CLPHC?
The Community Legal Partnership for Health (CLPHC) is a medical legal partnership staffed by certified student attorneys from the University of Minnesota Law School. They partner with local clinics to offer free, civil legal services with no income guidelines.
How do name changes work?
The legal name change process involves filling out an application, turning it in at a local courthouse, and attending a hearing in front of a judge. Patients can receive guidance and instruction on how to file out the necessary paperwork and successfully navigate the court system.
What They Do
We offer free civil legal services on a walk-in basis, including advice, brief service, representation, and referrals.
