Watch our short video to find out how the online application works.
CLEAR*Online is a secure way to start your application for free legal services. This application is the first step to find out if you qualify.
What will happen after you complete your application?
If you appear to be eligible and have an issue with eviction, debt, government benefits, or special education, the Northwest Justice Project will call you, or you may be referred to another legal aid organization who may help you.
If you appear to be eligible and have a different legal problem, you may be asked to call the Northwest Justice Project’s CLEAR hotline. Filling out an application can make the screening process go more quickly.
If you are not eligible, you may be referred to another reduced cost legal service or to a lawyer referral service. We may also be able to give you helpful information or legal forms online.
Is this an emergency?
If you have a deadline coming up in the next few days, complete this application and then call CLEAR at 1-888-201-1014 as soon as possible (weekdays 9:15 am to 12:15 pm).
