Free Legal Aid Southern California - Free Legal Aid, Legal Assistance, Free Family Law Legal Help Resources & Clinics

Southern California Superior Court - Southern California Divorce Attorneys
Free legal aid, free legal assistance and free legal help on family law matters in Southern California can often be found through various community agencies and organizations that help low-income or the economically disadvantaged, the elderly or seniors, and the disabled who cannot afford hiring a Southern California family law attorney in private practice. Legal aid agencies are typically funded by a combination of public and private sources.

Some legal aid agencies or clinics provide legal information and do not require you to be screened for eligibility while others may require you to be screened for eligibility for legal advice. Legal Aid's clients generally have incomes at or below the federal poverty level. This number continues to grow each year. Thousands more have incomes that make hiring a family law attorney in private practice impossible leaving no option other than self-representation.

Many local "legal aid" or "legal assistance" agencies in Southern California are non-profit agencies that strive to assure the poor, elderly, disabled and disadvantaged meaningful access to the courts by offering free family law assistance, free legal education, and various free legal services. Many of these services are offered through divorce workshops, family law clinics, and/or volunteer or pro bono divorce attorneys or paralegals.

If you need legal assistance with your family law matter and cannot afford the services of a Southern California divorce attorney in private practice you may want to contact your local family law facilitator office at your California Superior Court location or contact one of the free legal aid agencies in your area in Southern California below.
