Monmouth Bar Association Reduced Fee Program
About the Program
The purpose of the RFP is to provide legal assistance to lower income residents who do not qualify for Legal Aid or for Public Defender services, but who cannot afford to pay attorney’s fees at rates which would ordinarily be charged. Individuals who meet the income requirements for the program will be referred to an attorney who may represent them at a reduced rate.
The RFP will refer in the following subject areas:
Child Support Reduction/Increase
Post Judgment Enforcement Order
Landlord/Tenant (Tenant Only)
Special Civil Part
* (no first or second degree offenses for criminal or juvenile)
Municipal Court (DWI)
Post-Conviction Relief (Municipal only)
Megan’s Law Termination
Clients who seek assistance through the RFP must not have household income greater than 300% of the official poverty threshold (OPT), as established by the Federal Government, and liquid assets over $5000, and own more than one home per family and one car per adult. Any person residing in the same household as client for over one year shall be considered a member of the client’s household.
