Free Legal Help for Veterans and Their Families During November Rural Legal Clinics
AUSTIN, TX, November, 11 2020 — In honor of Veterans Day and Texas Veterans Legal Aid Week, Texas Legal Services Center (TLSC) is inviting veterans to participate in our November Family Law Clinics normally held monthly at local public libraries, schools, and community centers in rural areas across the state.
Low-income veterans and their families needing help with financial relief, securing benefits, challenging discrimination, creating estate plans, and making family arrangements—like divorce and custody—are encouraged to register. Legal issues we can help with:
Sealing Criminal Records
Divorce, Custody, and Child Support
Education (Ex. GI Bill, Hazelwood, Student Loans)
Housing, Bankruptcy, and Foreclosure
Medicare and Medicaid
Eligibility and Registration
You must be a Texas resident. You must be a veteran or the spouse, surviving spouse, or a dependent (a minor child or an adult child with disabilities living with the parents) of a veteran. Your household income must be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
Because of Covid-19, many of our host locations will not be accepting in-person appointments. Once you register, a TLSC team member will reach out to verify your information. Clinic appointments will be over the phone.
Those interested should visit tlsc.org/familylawclinics and select their nearest clinic location.
