Utah Legal Services (ULS)

  • 455 N. University Avenue, Suite 10, Provo and 205 N. 400 W., Salt Lake City

ULS works with the following types of issues and groups: family law, victims of domestic violence, housing and landlord-tenant disputes, public benefits issues (for example, SSI and SDSI benefits, food stamps, unemployment, Medicaid, and other financial assistance), consumer and expungement assistance, senior citizens, Native Americans, and farm workers. Open hours: 8:00am–5:00pm. New clients may speed up the process by filling out the online intake form. ULS can only take a limited number of the cases they receive. ULS will take cases if 1) the cases qualify as the types of issues for which ULS offers services (in other words, protective order, stalking injunction, etc.) OR the clients meet low income requirements, and 2) the cases meet the level of higher domestic violence. If a person does not qualify for ULS, he/she should consider the Utah County Family Justice Center.
