Civil Legal Advice

Civil Legal Advice is government service that provides free and confidential legal advice in England and Wales if you're eligible for legal aid.

There is a 'legal aid checker' on the website that you can use to see if you're eligible.

You can get help with legal aid for:

  • debt, if your home is at risk
  • special educational needs
  • housing, if you’re homeless or at risk of being evicted
  • discrimination issues
  • help and advice if you're a victim of domestic abuse
  • separating from an abusive partner, when you’re making arrangements for children or sorting out money and property
  • issues around a child being taken into care
  • some child abduction cases

You can also contact CLA if you are unhappy about the service you have received from them.

You can ask Civil Legal Advice for a free call back - or text 'legalaid' and your name to 80010.

There is a free translation service if English isn't your first language.

You can also book a British Sign Language interpreter if you are deaf or hard of hearing.
