Free legal aid means the right to the provision of all or part of the funds to cover the costs of legal aid and exemption from the costs of judicial proceedings (in practice, this is the cost of legal consultation and legal representation). An application for the provision of free legal aid is filed on the prescribed form (you may buy it in a bookshop) at court in the area of your registered residence.

Free legal aid is available to persons who, according to their financial situation and the situation of their family, would not be able to cover the costs of the procedure themselves without jeopardising their financial position and the financial position of their family. Thus, a person whose average monthly income per family member does not exceed the amount of the legal minimum wage is eligible for free legal aid.
