How would I be able to qualify for legal aid? I received a summons from my county stating I have a court date for a past due medical bill. Its a little over 2000 dollars. I have been out of work since 2008 and I'm currently in my 3rd trimester of my first pregnancy and am unable to find work. The summons states I will be responsible for reasonable attorney fees plus costs of this proceeding. I have no income and my husband doesn't make much himself. Would I qualify for legal aid to be able to get this taken care of? I am willing to pay them back but it would only be a small amount at a time. I do remember receiving a few calls from a collection agency and agreed to pay like 10 dollars a month. And then nothing after that. Well I was unable to make even those payments and all of a sudden I get this court summons. Any help would be appreciated! I'm trying to avoid bankruptcy as I'm only 26 and I am going to have a baby soon but it might be best for my situation.
