Special to the
To help low-income Alabama residents navigate legal issues, the newly launched Alabama Free Legal Answers program provides free qualified legal advice through the website https://alabama.freelegalanswers.org/. The website gives eligible users the ability to pose civil legal questions to volunteer attorneys and receive answers on the site.
Users of this service must meet income eligibility guidelines that are available on the site. The current COVID-19 pandemic impacts under-served people with unemployment, loss of income and housing issues that may present legal questions that could be answered on the website.
Examples of topics that may generate legal questions include:
-Landlord Tenant Issues
-Consumer Debt Problems
-Family and Children
-Estates and Wills
While expanding access to legal services, Alabama Free Legal Answers also expands pro bono opportunities for attorneys in a convenient way to match their schedules.
