Find help for your civil case.

We match volunteer attorneys with clients who need help with shelter, income, safety, or access to justice.

We only take civil cases. “Civil” means that it is not a criminal case, an ordinance violation, traffic ticket, or criminal record expungement.

Examples of civil cases

Cases involving families, such as:

  • Divorces with children
  • Custody or parenting time cases in which there is documented abuse to the child or parent
  • Adoptions
  • Minor and adult guardianships

Cases involving financial issues, such as:

  • Collection defense
  • Bankruptcy
  • Mortgage foreclosures

Cases involving property, wills, and estates, such as:

  • Small estate probate
  • Advanced directives such as powers of attorney and living wills
  • Landlord/tenant matters
  • Personal and real property cases.

Do I qualify for help?

Because there are so many people needing legal help in the state of Indiana, we cannot take all civil cases, and must prioritize the cases we take. Find out if you meet our requirements.

You can also call during our intake hours to see whether your case is one that we may place with an attorney.
