Here’s how Florida Free Legal Answers works:
Go to https://florida.
freelegalanswers.org to sign up and answer a few questions to see if you qualify to use the service. You must have an annual household income below 250 percent of federal poverty guidelines; have less than $6,000 in total assets; be at least 18 years old; and not be incarcerated. If you are not eligible, you will not be able to utilize this program and will receive a denial indication.
After you register, you may ask a specific question about your non-criminal legal issue.
You will receive an email telling you when your question has received a response.
Log back in, see the response, and ask more questions if necessary. Attorneys can submit a single response or have a dialogue with the user through the site. Please note: The volunteer lawyers at Florida Free Legal Answers can't call you or represent you in court.
The information users provide is confidential, and the answers are not associated with the client’s name. Data will be collected only for data-sharing purposes. Attorneys will see only the information associated with a client’s legal issue.
Users will not know the name of the attorneys who answer their questions unless the attorneys choose to provide it, a client makes a specific request for the name of the attorney or it is required by a court of law. Volunteer attorneys will not write letters, make phone calls or file documents, or attend court proceedings.
