How To Qualfy For Legal Aid In Louisiana:

To qualify for legal aid, you must typically meet two requirements:

1. Income requirements: Most legal aid organizations have income limits. You must earn below a certain amount of money to be eligible for services. The income limit varies from state to state and from organization to organization, but it is typically around 125% of the federal poverty level.
2. Type of case: Legal aid organizations typically only handle certain types of cases. These cases may include family law issues (such as divorce and child custody), housing issues, and public benefits issues.

In addition to these two general requirements, some legal aid organizations also have additional eligibility requirements. For example, some organizations only serve certain groups of people, such as seniors, veterans, or people with disabilities.

To find out if you qualify for legal aid, you can contact a legal aid organization in your area. You can find a list of legal aid organizations on the Legal Services Corporation website: https://www.lsc.gov/find-legal-aid.

Once you have contacted a legal aid organization, they will assess your eligibility and let you know if you qualify for services. If you do qualify, they will assign you to an attorney who can help you with your case.

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.
