Apply Online

Our online​ application is an easy-to-follow interactive interview that walks you step by step through our intake process. The interview will ask you a number of questions so we can understand your problem in order to give you the best help possible. You will be asked to answer questions about your legal problem, income and property, and the people living in your household. It may take up to 30 minutes to finish the interview.

Due to the overwhelming call volume on our helpline, we have temporarily closed our online application to serve as many callers as possible. If you need legal help, please call 1-866-219-5262 (toll-free).
