For cases involving government benefits, consumer (including debt collection, consumer fraud) or loss of housing other than foreclosure (most problems in these categories), you can complete an online application. We will review your application and if you appear to be eligible for our services, we will offer to call you between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM or 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
If you have a different legal problem, you will be directed to call the CLEAR Hotline or another legal aid program to finish the intake process. We will not call you. If no legal aid program can help you, the site will offer links to legal information that may help you solve the problem.
Filling out the application online will speed up the intake process when you call. Watch the short video below for details. Online intake requires the free Adobe Flash Player software to be installed on your computer.
