About us

The Social Legal Aid is a 100% public funded organization that offers legal- and debt counselling.

We can assist you in a number of cases, so do not hesitate to contact us if you are in need of help. We offer counselling by phone, e-mail or in person.

To ensure the quality of our counselling, every single one of our employees has to live up to our Code of Conduct. You can therefore be certain that you are in good hands.

We can help you if....

As a public funded organisation, there are certain rules to whom we may help:

  • All citizens below the income limit for free legal aid   
  • All former, present and coming inmates
  • All socially vulnerable citizens

However, all citizens throughout the country can receive counselling on the so-called "step 1", meaning that everybody can get an answer to simple questions that does not require an extended case work time. If you are in need of extended help, we will refer you to a lawyer. You will have to pay for this yourself, if you are not covered by a legal aid insurance.

The income limit for free legal aid in 2018 is 322.000 kr. a year for single persons and 409.000 kr. for couples.  You can add 56.000 kr. to these numbers for each child you have.
