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 are encouraged to talk privately to the attorney about civil legal problems regarding housing, family law, public benefits to which they are eligible, consumer law and guardianship issues. Priority will be given to the parents of Lake Station students, but area residents are also welcome. Use the “North Shore” entrance on the east side of the school; ring buzzer and identify yourself. Anyone with a civil legal problem that needs immediate attention should call ILS in Merrillville at (219) 738-6040 or (888) 255-5104.
