Eligibility Requirements

Financial Eligibility

Financial Eligibility is based primarily on gross (before deductions) income from all sources and from all people residing in a family unit.  Income may not exceed 125% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines.  The Federal Government adjusts this amount at least once a year.  There are also limits to the amount of assets that you may own and still be eligible for help from Portage County Legal Aid Society, Inc.  Current income and asset limits are available at our office.

Potential clients must complete an application and be screened before the case is accepted!
