How to Apply for Services
If you are victim of domestic violence and want help getting a protective order or a stalking injunction, please go to our courthouse offices for immediate services. This service is done free of cost and on a walk-in basis, regardless of citizenship status - no appointment is necessary.
If you need help with a family law case (such as custody, paternity, child support, divorce, grandparent visitation), Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake can ONLY assist you if your case can be filed in Salt Lake County and if you are a citizen or in the country legally. Generally, in order to file a new case in Salt Lake County, at least one of the people involved in the case must live in Salt Lake County. For a divorce case, the husband or wife must live in Salt Lake County for at least three months.
To modify final orders entered by a court outside of Salt Lake County, at least one person must currently live in Salt Lake County and the other person can no longer live in the place where the original order was entered.

If Legal Aid cannot assist you or you want to represent yourself, you can go to the Family Law Clinic to obtain legal forms and information to represent yourself. Divorce and custody forms are also available on the Court's website at www.utcourts.gov.
