Application for Legal Assistance

If you are seeking legal assistance from New Mexico Legal Aid, you must answer

several questions before we can determine if we can assist you. 

You must be financially eligible and your case must fall within New Mexico Legal Aid’s case preferences

unless you are a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking.

When you complete this form, it does not mean that New Mexico Legal Aid can accept your case.

New Mexico Legal Aid cannot assist everyone who applies for help.

You should not assume that we will be able to help you unless one of our

attorneys contacts you to let you know that we can accept your case.


Click "Yes" if you understand and agree with this.

Click "Exit" if you do not wish to continue with this application.
