Who can we help?

The Social Legal Aid is a 100% public funded organization, and as such, there are certain demands to who, and what we can help with. As a starting point, we offer free legal and debt counseling to all citizens throughout the country, regarding step 1 counseling. All citizens below the income limit are eligible for step 1-3 counseling. Additionally, can all former, present and coming inmates and socially vulnerable citizens from the whole country receive counseling.


For citizens below the income limit for free process

Are you below the income limit for free process, we offer free legal and debt-counseling on step 1, and where it is deemed necessary, also on step 2-3. The income limit for free process was off 2016 on 308.000 kr. a year for single persons (approximately 25.666 kr. each month) and 391.000kr. for couples (approximately 32.583 kr. each month – combined).
