This is a virtual legal advice portal where income-eligible individuals can ask civil legal questions. On the ABA Free Legal Answers Federal site, attorneys with VA accreditation can sign up to volunteer to answer veterans questions about VA benefits, discharge upgrades, and similar veteran legal issues. To answer state-specific legal questions, such as a family law or housing question, visit the main ABA Free Legal Answers website and sign up with your State.
