Family Law

Programs that provide assistance for people who are involved in disputes or legal actions which affect their domestic relationships.

General Legal Aid

Programs that provide legal counseling and/or representation for low-income individuals who need assistance in routine legal matters, usually in the area of bankruptcy, housing, public benefits, family law, elder law or immigration/naturalization.

Landlord/Tenant Assistance

Programs that provide assistance, information and support for tenants and/or landlords who are involved in rental housing disputes; or which administer state laws or local ordinances which govern rent control and other aspects of tenant/landlord relations.

Reproductive Rights Legal Services

Programs that provide information, education, advocacy and/or other forms of assistance for women as well as individuals who may identify as trans, non-binary or non-conforming who have questions about their legal rights when it comes to making arrangements for an abortion. Included are programs that provide a hotline or helpline which offers access to an advocate who can provide information about a self-managed abortion and how to make arrangements for one, young people's access to abortion without involving their parents, or a judicial bypass which involves asking a judge to give a person permission to get an abortion without involving a parent or legal guardian, as well as referrals to local resources. Other legal service programs may connect an individual with an attorney who is well versed in the area of abortion rights and can guide them through the steps they need to take to make the necessary arrangements. Although women have the right to abortion in some states depending on the state's constitution and the state legislatures that enforce them, access to an abortion is restricted in others; and people may be required to do something before their abortion, like get counseling from a healthcare provider, get an ultrasound, or wait a certain amount of time between their counseling and their abortion appointment.

School System Advocacy

Programs that assist families in their interactions with the school system which may include help with school registration, enrollment of children in special programs, intervention on behalf of students facing disciplinary action or expulsion and other activities which facilitate communication between families and school staff.
