Free Civil Legal Aid
An Indiana Legal Services Inc. attorney will provide free legal help to eligible families whose civil legal problems might cause them to uproot their children from school during the academic year. Parents can discuss housing issues, family law matters, public benefits to which they are eligible, consumer law issues and guardianship. Priority is given to parents of Lake Station students, but other area residents are welcome. Use the North Shore entrance on the east side of the school and ring the buzzer. To be eligible for aid, a household income of $14,363 or less for a one person or $29,438 for a four-person household is required. Call ILS in Merrillville at (219) 738-6040 or toll-free at (888) 255-5104 with immediate problem.
