Lone Star Legal Aid Offers Help to Texans Facing Evictions
Lone Star Legal Aid announced the launch of its Eviction HELP Project, a self-guided tool that helps Texas renters to fight evictions during the COVID 19 Pandemic.
The Eviction HELP Project helps eviction litigants prepare for court by giving renters legal information about evictions and creating court documents that renters can use in their fight.
With generous funding from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation, the Disaster Team at LSLA developed a guided interview that will allow renters who are representing themselves in eviction court, law students, and attorneys to create court documents to file in eviction court.
If the tenants still need legal help, the tool will also help them apply for free legal assistance in their area.
