Como Obtener Servicios Legales de Ayuda Legal

Statewide Legal Services (SLS) ofrece asesoría legal gratuita para personas de bajos ingresos con problemas en Connecticut. Para ciertos problemas también podemos referirle a otro programa de asistencia legal o un abogado voluntario. No pueden ayudar a personas con problemas en otros estados.

Utilizar nuestro Buscador de Ayuda Legal para ver si podemos ayudarle.

La mayoría de sus servicios legales son disponibles solo para personas con un ingreso igual o más bajo del 125% del nivel federal de pobreza. Si usted tiene 60 años o más y cree que su ingreso es más alto, puede comunicarse con la oficina de servicios legales mas cercana a usted para ver si usted es elegible para recibir servicios legales.

SLS no puede ayudarle con un caso criminal, si está tratando de demandar a alguien o tiene un problema de inmigración.
