In the e-services, you can make a preliminary calculation of whether you are entitled to legal aid and submit an application for legal aid. If you wish, you can save an incomplete legal aid application and continue filling it in later. Please note: the e-services are available only in Finnish and Swedish.

Log in to the service with online banking codes, a mobile certificate or a certificate card. If it is not possible for you to log in to the e-service, you can request legal aid at a legal aid office.

Completing a preliminary calculation for legal aid does not require logging in to the service.

Attorneys and defence counsels can complete an application and submit claims for fees and expenses paid from state funds.

In the service, interpreters and translators can draw up an itemised invoice and submit it to the court or legal aid office.
