Legal Aid to have free clinic

Legal Aid will have a free Legal Aid Walk In Clinic on Tuesday at the Bartholomew County Public Library in Columbus. The clinic will be from 3 to 5 p.m. and is for low-income residents.

The Legal Aid Clinic and Pro Bono Program utilizes local volunteer attorneys, offering free legal consultations to low-income individuals to those who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

Individuals coming to the Legal Aid Clinic can expect to receive a 10-minute consultation to answer general and eviction questions, offer legal information, or to receive other limited pro se assistance or advice, in person, on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is not required.

The general advice clinic for items such as adoptions, advance directives, family law, guardianships, protective orders, simple wills and small estates, is from 3 to 4 p.m.

The eviction clinic is from 4 to 5 p.m. covering negotiations with a landlord, legal defenses to an eviction damage hearings and eviction records. No criminal law questions will be answered.
