Please feel free to contact any of our offices and we will be more than happy to do an intake to see if you qualify for our services.

I was evicted Sunday forcefully. The property manager waited until Sunday to tell me I couldn’t pay. She has been very shady the whole process. Not to mention I went without a hot water heater for a month or longer. Had a pre existing Leak. And kept bumping up what I owed for rent. And wouldn’t take and payment . My daughter went in on nov. 4th 2019 . To make a payment and was denied . Then we were charged a late fee. And charged the whole month of nov. and evicted the 24th. Now she will not let me get the rest of my belongings.

My husband abandoned me first part of October. He is not giving me half of money, he moved into expensive "Home". while my son and I were forced from our home cause I couldn't pay all the bills in spring creek. I feel I should get half of his retirement, he doesnt agree. I am interested in a legal separation, he wont divorce me so I don't think i have any other choice. Please let me know if this even possible. we moved into low income apartment. Please help.

I want a divorce, so I went on line to get the forms from Elko County court house and they only have the forms for Joint Petition For Divorce. So i called court house and the lady who answered the phone told me that she couldn't help me on any forms and told me to call Legal aid. I cant afford a lawyer but I need to start the process of a divorce, we have been separated since Jan 09, 2019. No children were born into this marriage.

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.
