Pine Tree Legal Assistance is a statewide, non-profit organization committed to providing high quality, free, civil legal assistance to low-income people in Maine. Our mission is to ensure that state and federal laws affecting poor people are enforced while also addressing the systemic barriers to justice that low-income Mainers face. We are committed to ensuring that all Mainers have access to justice. Our services range from simple advice and brief service to negotiations and full representation in the most serious cases. To supplement our limited staff capacity, we also provide user-friendly explanations of the law and self-help tools, provide outreach and community education, and work with entities that serve low income people, including social service providers, members of the private bar and the courts.


By federal rules most Pine Tree services are limited to people with household incomes at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines (and below 125% after deductions, such as housing costs). Some of our programs allow higher incomes. If you dont qualify for our help, we will tell you right away.

I'm seeking information on how to file a request to amend Child Support Order with special circumstances. I am an airline pilot unexpectedly laid off, and the standard calculation using last year's income and this year's income will be unpayable. I'd like to file a request for temporary relief and a permanent rate adjustment, but don't know which form or process to use to convey the severity of my change of circumstances to the Judge

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
