Project Self-Sufficiency offers a variety of free legal advice, education and assistance programs for residents of Sussex County, New Jersey, and the surrounding area. Interested participants are encouraged to call 973-940-3500 for more information.
Free Legal Consultations & Advice
Income eligible Sussex County residents are invited to meet privately with an attorney to discuss their legal concerns. The free 45-minute consultations are scheduled every Thursday at Project Self-Sufficiency.
Divorce Mediation Program
Individuals seeking a divorce can avoid a trial by seeking a legal divorce through mediation. Sessions are facilitated by attorneys who offer their services at a free or reduced rate, depending upon income-eligibility. Participation by both parties is voluntary; legal guidelines for participation apply.
