Legal advisory organizations provide legal counsel, advice and information, and representation to people with limited incomes. If your legal problem turns into a court case, it`s helpful to have a lawyer. North West Jersey Legal Services provides free civil justice services to low-income people, the elderly and people living with HIV/AIDS. LSNWJ`s Basic Needs Program is aimed at households with incomes equal to or less than 200% of the federal poverty line. Due to limited resources, LSNWJ is unable to represent all low-income individuals in Hunterdon, Morris, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties with all their legal needs. Hello, my children have expressed concerns to their counselors at school about their father (from whom I have been separated for 7 years). DCP&P interviewed my children and me today. They`re supposed to go back to their dad`s house on Sunday night and I don`t feel comfortable with that. I am looking for legal advice and I would also like to look at his full custody. I do not know how to approach this process.

Any help would be appreciated. I am a month and a half behind on my rent. I went to social services, but they can`t help me because I`m missing 200.00 a month to stay where I am. I tried to pay. It`s not like I`m paying nothing New Jersey Legal Services (LSNJ) coordinates the statewide legal services system that provides low-income New Jersey residents with free legal advice for their civil law issues. In addition, you can contact the LSNJ office in your district. To find your local legal aid office, visit the LSNJ District Directory. In addition, people threatened with eviction or foreclosure can contact a state housing counselor or contact a legal aid agency in your community. LSNWJ does not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation and gender identity in the provision of services. If you have a legal problem, the advice of a lawyer will help. If you are a client, contributions will only be accepted once the work on your file is completed and are strictly voluntary.

Whether you make a contribution and how much your contribution is is your personal decision. If you`re at risk of eviction or have concerns about paying rent, visit covid19.nj.gov/renter to learn more about eviction protection and rent assistance in New Jersey.
