Civil Legal Aid Programs

Kentucky's civil legal aid programs provide free legal assistance to low-income and other vulnerable people. The four legal aid programs assist individuals and families with issues related to income, family, housing, food security, safety and health.

Lawyer Referral Services

Sometimes people in need of an attorney do not know of one to call. Lawyer referral services were created for just that reason. Attorneys provided by the lawyer referral services may charge fees for services rendered. If you cannot afford an attorney, a legal aid program may be able to help.​


Having a case expunged involves asking a judge to order that a criminal conviction be removed permanently from a person’s criminal history report. Not all charges are eligible for expungement and there are several steps in the process, including first obtaining an Expungement Certification. Once the certification has been obtained, a person may file a Petition for Expungement with the Circuit Court Clerk in the county where the conviction occurred. There may be fees associated with an expungement so check with the Circuit Court Clerk in the county you are filing in to confirm the amount you may be required to pay.

Legal Forms

These forms are provided as a convenience to individuals and are not a substitute for legal advice. If you have difficulty filling out these forms, then you may wish to consult with an attorney.
