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.

Project Self-Sufficiency also offers a court accompaniment program, pro se divorce workshops, and do-it-yourself legal clinics. All services are free to income-eligible participants.

Funding for the legal education and assistance programs is provided in part by the IOLTA Fund of the Bar of New Jersey.
