Call the Telephone Access to Justice (TAJ) hotline at 1-888-988-9996 during the following hours:

Monday 8:30 am – 7:30 pm
Tuesday 8:30 am – 7:30 pm
Wednesday 8:30 am – 7:30 pm
Thursday 8:30 am – 7:30 pm
Friday 8:30 am – 5:30 pm

We know that it is often difficult to get through to TRLA on the TAJ hotline and we apologize for the inconvenience. We get far more calls on the hotline every day than we can answer, especially calls related to family law issues. It may be easier to reach us in the evening.

Online Screening Forms

You may complete and submit an online application to TRLA for the three types of legal problems described below. Please keep in mind that an online application is only the first step in TRLA’s intake process. It does not mean that you are eligible for TRLA‘s legal services or that TRLA will provide you with legal services. TRLA will review the information submitted online and, if it appears to meet our criteria, will contact you to continue the application process. Please be patient and do not call us to ask about the status of your online application. TRLA has very limited resources and it may take a week or two before we can contact you.

Uncontested Divorces – Initial Screening for referral to our Uncontested Divorce Programs
(Submit this form to see if you may be eligible for one of our uncontested divorce programs.)

Protective Orders – Initial Screening for a Protective Order

Education Issues – Initial Screening for Education problems
