Legal Advice

  • Debt and Foreclosure
  • Estate Administration
  • Estate/Life Planning
  • Immigration
  • Landlord and Tenant
  • Civil Matters

Who Qualifies for Service?

The Community Legal Clinic – Medicine Hat uses a set of income guidelines to determine whether you are able to qualify for our assistance. Clients who do not qualify for Legal Aid and who are low income may be eligible.

We may be able to help you:

  • Understand legislation
  • Obtain information
  • Prepare for court hearings
  • Discuss your rights and obligations

Preparing For Clinic Appointments:

Clinic appointments are 30 minutes long. You will want to be prepared for your appointment as best as you can so you can use the time you have with your lawyer to answer all of the questions you may have. 
Here are some things to do before coming to an appointment:

  • Organize and bring any important papers including court document or letters
  • Make child care arrangements prior to coming and if possible do not bring children to the appointment
  • Be as honest and open during your meeting with the lawyer as possible. Our lawyers are here to help you, not judge you or your situation. Any information that you are not telling them could in fact hurt your case. All information is completely confidential and will not be shared outside of the organization.

Please Note:

  • A clinic appointment does not guarantee that The Community Legal Clinic will be able to provide additional or in-house legal services; and
  • Filing fees, disbursements and other costs are not covered by The Community Legal Clinic – Medicine Hat.
