Veterans, service members, and their families can get live online assistance from Colorado Legal Services (CLS) on Wednesdays throughout the month of September by visiting the CLS website and clicking on the “Live Help” button in the right column on the non-profits website. “Live Help” will be available every Wednesday (September 15, 22, 29) from 9-11am and 2-4pm.
The service will help individuals access legal information online and, if appropriate, determine whether a case would benefit from additional assistance.
If an individual is eligible for legal assistance, his or her contact information will be sent to a Colorado Legal Services office. Factors determining eligibility include, but are not limited to: income, type of legal issue, and resource availability.
CLS has also created a resource page for veterans at which provides information on applying for benefits and appealing benefit decisions. Also provided are links to information for veterans on housing, medical care and education assistance.
