Request Legal Help Online

This online application will walk you step-by-step through applying for legal help from Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut (SLS).

Please read this first:

Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut (SLS) is a non-profit organization that provides free legal assistance to eligible people with legal problems in Connecticut.  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 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 can help with problems related to domestic violence, evictions, foreclosures, government benefits, family, health and other issues.

Please fill out just one application for a problem.  We can't help everyone who applies for our help.

How does the interview work?

This interview will ask for information about you, your problem and any people, agencies or businesses causing your problem.  Because eligibility for SLS services may depend on your income and assets, we will ask you about the people who live with you.  We will ask about any income for people in your home, and any valuable property that you or others in your home may own.

These are questions that we need to ask people who apply for our help.

What happens when I finish the interview?

At the end of the interview there is a "SEND" button that will submit your request for legal help to Statewide Legal Services.  Someone from our office will get in touch with you within 5 work days.


This is a secure web site.  Your information will not be shared with anyone outside of Statewide Legal Services of Connecticut unless you give us permission.
