PartnerVine Access provides its products for free to legal aid societies and their clients. In addition to working with legal aid societies, we provide you access directly if you qualify. To decide who qualifies for free legal products from PartnerVine Access, we follow the maximum income levels established by the Legal Services Corporation (the "LSC").
Who is the Legal Services Corporation? The LSC is a nonprofit established by the United States Congress to promote equal access to justice and provide high quality civil legal assistance to low-income persons.
What are the maximum income levels? Every year, the LSC is required by law to establish maximum income levels for individuals eligible for legal assistance. The maximum income levels are equivalent to 125% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines set by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The income levels for individuals eligible for legal assistance for 2021 are as follows:
