Apply for Services
You may qualify to receive services from Community Legal Services (CLS).
Civil legal aid helps ensure fairness for all in the justice system, regardless of how much money you have. It provides access to legal help for people to protect their livelihoods, their health, and their families. Civil legal aid connects Americans with a range of services including legal assistance and representation, self-help centers and other court-based services, free legal clinics and pro-bono assistance, and access to web-based information and form that help guide them through complicated legal proceedings. In doing so, civil legal aid helps Americans protect their livelihoods, their health, and their families.
Civil legal aid provides:
- Easy-to-understand forms, including online forms, that people can use in civil legal proceedings.
- Legal assistance, including legal self-help centers, so people can know their rights.
- Legal representation to those who cannot afford it — because justice should not depend on how much money you have.
