legal aid

I'm trying to get a divorce, but am wondering if Legal Aid would be just as good as a regular lawyer that is wanting to charge me a 3000 retainer fee?

  • You can try it. There are some programs out there that will help you if your husband was the sole bread winner and you were SAHM

  • I used Legal Aid for my divorce. It was $250 for the divorce, so much more affordable. However, they would only help me if my divorce was uncontested (I'm in Ohio). Had my ex actually put up a fight about the divorce, Legal Aid would have backed out of it.

  • I used Legal Aid and didn't cost me a dime. They did a good job for me
