Hotlines

Calling one of our Hotlines is the fastest way to speak with a PLA advocate about your legal issue.

For help with home mortgages, sheriff sales, tangled titles, or mediation scheduled through the Eviction Diversion program call the Save Your Home Philly Hotline at 215-334-HOME (4663) between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Outside of these hours, callers can leave a message and get a call back from a PLA advocate.

For help with child custody, leaving an abusive home, or another family issue, call the Family Law Hotline at 215-981-3838. Typically, the hotline operates between 9:30 a.m. and 12 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

**Please note that PLA’s Family Law Intake hours will be reduced to 2 days per week starting Monday, December 5, 2022. Family Law Intake will also close from December 19, 2022 to January 3, 2023.** 

For help with unemployment compensation, tax issues, or any other issue, call the General Intake Hotline at 215-981-3800 between 9:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Monday through Thursday.  

If your legal problem is SSI, you need to apply to Community Legal Services (CLS) for assistance.  Your case may be referred from CLS to PLA.  For the intake hours at CLS, see the SSI page of CLS's web site
