Legal Aid of Nebraska provides both electronic tools as well as in-person clinics for certain types of legal issues where Nebraskans may be empowered to help themselves solve their own legal issues with limited assistance or no assistance from our attorneys.
Both the Lincoln and Omaha offices of Legal Aid of Nebraska operate walk-in “Access To Justice” clinics several days every week, where visitors may receive legal advice from one of our attorneys. Pre-registration for these clinics is not required, but a brief intake form will need to be filled out when you arrive. The Lincoln and Omaha walk-in clinics are first-come, first-serve. The hours for these clinics are as follows:
Monday through Wednesday, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Community Outreach and Events Calendar
In addition, our offices across the state offer a variety of other self-help “Access to Justice” programming, including bankruptcy preparation clinics and child support modification clinics. Pre-registration is required for these. For more information about clinics hours and how to register for our non-walk-in clinics, please visit the community calendar page:
Electronic Self-Help Resources.
Legal Aid of Nebraska has gathered the most common types of legal issues facing low-income Nebraskans and developed a number of electronic resources including automated court forms.
These resources are provided as a service to low-income Nebraskans to help them protect their legal rights and to understand their legal responsibilities. These resources are not for commercial use and charging for use in any way is prohibited. These resources are for low-income people who cannot afford legal assistance.
The use of these resources does not create an attorney/client relationship. Click here for the complete disclaimer.
Links to the self-help tools may be found below. Please also note that more, non-interactive resources may be found in our resource library.
