Legal Aid to have walk-in clinic

Legal Aid will have a free walk-in clinic from 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Bartholomew County Public Library in Columbus.

The free clinic is for low-income residents.

The program utilizes local volunteer attorneys, offering free legal consultations to low-income individuals to assist those who might not otherwise be able to afford an attorney.

Individuals can expect to receive a 10-minute consultation to answer general questions and eviction questions, receive legal information or receive other assistance or advice in person on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no need to register in advance.

A general advice clinic will be from 3 to 4 p.m. for questions on family law, advance directives, adoptions, child support modification, divorce, guardianships, protective orders and more. No criminal law questions will be considered. An eviction session will be from 4 to 5 p.m., with advice on negotiating with your landlord, legal defenses, damages and other topics.

Those unable to attend may visit to find additional free legal help.
