There is an administrative fee of $50, which will be charged over the phone with your ATM/Debit Card or Credit Card.

Our Service Areas

Central California Legal Services helps people get health care: we contact insurance companies, and doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, to make sure they give patients essential treatment as the law requires. We represent people who are being harassed or sued for medical debt, working with the debt collectors or going to court as needed. CCLS also helps with Medi-Cal (including Medi-Cal Estate Recovery), Medicare, and Covered California issues. Get more information by calling our Health Consumer Center at 1-800-675-8001, ext. 1271 or find health resources at LawHelpCA.org and HealthConsumer.org.

Central California Legal Services helps families avoid homelessness, and protects their right to safe and decent housing. We help tenants in disputes with their landlords, and we bring cases to ensure local governments follow the law to make sure there is enough decent housing for low-income residents. Low-income Fresno County tenants (and landlords too) can receive legal information and help with eviction documents at the Fresno Superior Court, B.F. Sisk Courthouse, every Tuesday and Thursday. Get more information by calling our Legal Advice Line at 1-800-675-8001 or find housing resources at LawHelpCA.org.

Central California Legal Services helps victims escape domestic violence or abuse, and get back on their feet financially. We help survivors of human trafficking with legal services and referrals, and where appropriate, immigration relief through T-Visas. We meet with victims confidentially. We help them obtain and renew restraining orders, and we provide in-court representation in some cases. We also help families care for children whose parents cannot make daily decisions for them: in two free Guardianship Workshops a month, staff explains the court process, reviews forms, answers general questions, and can provide one-on-one assistance to qualified litigants.

We offer free legal advice to eligible individuals, and may provide free legal representation in some cases.
