Legal Aid also helps low income individuals deal with family law matters. Legal Aid gives priority to screening cases that are urgent or can directly benefit children.
Outside of the covered family matters, Legal Aid does not provide help with other kinds of legal problems such as real estate transactions, adoption, immigration law, or civil suits, such as people suing one another.
The following is an overview of Legal Aid Services, it is not a complete list of what is, and is not covered, so be sure to contact your local Legal Aid office about your specific situation. How you apply depends on your situation and what kind of legal service you are seeking.
