Who Qualifies for Service?

LLG uses a set of income guidelines to determine whether you are able to qualify for our assistance. Clients who do not qualify for Legal Aid and who are on low income may be eligible.

We may be able to help you:

  • Understand legislation
  • Obtain information
  • Prepare for court hearings
  • Discuss your rights and obligations

Preparing For Clinic Appointments:

Clinic appointments are 30 minutes long. Clients will want to be prepared in advance of the appointment so to fully utilize the time as effectively as possible. Here are some things to do before coming to an appointment:

  • Organize and bring any important papers including court document or letters
  • Make child care arrangements prior to coming and if possible do not bring children to the appointment

Please Note:

  • A clinic appointment does not guarantee that LLG will be able to provide additional or in-house legal services
  • Filing fees, disbursements and other costs are not covered by LLG.
