Virginia.freelegalanswers.org is part of an ABA multi-state initiative to provide online pro bono civil legal assistance to Virginia residents with income levels of 200 percent of the poverty guidelines or less (a household income of just over $29,000 annually for a single adult). Prospective clients will log on to the site and be screened to determine if they meet the threshold income requirements. If they qualify, the users may post questions about a civil legal issue. Users may post up to three questions in a twelve-month period. Their question will then be placed in a queue for Virginia lawyers according to the nature of the legal issue or type of problem (i.e., "Family/Divorce/Custody" or "Debts & Purchases"). In addition to the question, the user posts relevant facts and may even attach documents and photos.
