Apply Online

You can begin the application process for legal aid through CLEAR*Online. You will answer questions about your finances and legal problem.

If you appear to be eligible and have an issue with eviction, debt, government benefits, or special education, NJP will call you, or you may be referred to another legal aid organization who may help you. 

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. Filling out the application online will speed up the intake process when you call CLEAR. (1-888-201-1014)
