CHANGING LIVES THROUGH JUSTICE
Clients are welcome in the GLS offices if they have scheduled an appointment with their GLS attorney or paralegal. Appointments will be scheduled only when absolutely necessary to help reduce risk of transmission. The best way to get help is still to fill out an online application and wait for a paralegal to contact you.
*A Note on the Eviction Moratorium 9/1/2020*
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is implementing a temporary eviction moratorium through the end of the year as part of its effort to combat COVID-19. More information on this moratorium can be found here.
The moratorium does not absolve renters of paying the rent. That money is still due to landlords, and renters should still attempt to make partial payments when they cannot afford to pay in full. If you are experiencing financial setbacks due to COVID, check out our Eviction Mitigation Project to see if we can help you.
