Statewide Legal Services (SLS) gives free legal advice to low-income people with problems in Connecticut. For some problems we may send you to another legal aid program or to a volunteer attorney. We cannot help people with problems in other states.
Most of our legal services are available only for people with household income at or below 125% of the federal poverty level. If you are 60 years old or older and think your income is higher than this, you may contact the legal aid office closest to you to see if you are eligible for legal services.
We cannot help you with a criminal case, if are trying to sue someone, or if you have an immigration problem.
Use our Legal Help Finder to find out if you should apply for legal aid.
