Im on SSI Supplemental income & can't afford a retainer.
You may be eligible for free services in some limited circumstances when convicted of a crime. In general, the classes you are talking about are not free. If a child is involved - CPS may pay for the classes if a Child in Need of Services Petition or At-Risk Youth Petition is filed. Or if they have an out of home placement or have taken child into fostercare. I recomend that you start sving towards the class.
None that I am aware of. You can contact some and see if they have sliding scales. Hopefully you will be able to find one in your area.
