What is LiveHelp?
Are you having trouble finding the legal information that you need?
You can use LiveHelp to chat with someone who can help you find what you need. Just click on the orange chat button in the bottom right of your screen.
You will chat with staff and volunteers of LawHelpNY and its partner organizations. The staff and volunteers have been trained to help find information on LawHelpNY.org and court websites.
LiveHelp is available Monday to Friday 9 AM to 9 PM (Eastern Standard Time). LiveHelp is not available on most holidays.
We would appreciate if you fill out the survey that pops up at the end of your chat.
What kind of information can LiveHelp volunteers help me find?
LawHelpNY has information about common civil legal problems, such as divorce, custody, debt, housing, government benefits, and much more.
LawHelpNY cannot give you advice on what to do in your particular case, but we can help you find organizations that can advise or represent you for free.
LawHelpNY does not have information about criminal law. However, we do have information about problems that criminal charges or convictions can cause, such as employment problems or housing issues.
