Who is eligible for services?
To determine eligibility MILS staff will ask questions upon intake:
Legal issue- MILS may assist in specific areas such as Indian Child Welfare and Tribal Housing. Areas of law we may not assist with include state and federal criminal charges.
Income eligibility- Different programs have different income level (and asset) requirements.
Tribal contracts (Pokagon, Gun Lake, and Nottawaseppi) allow us to use higher income eligibility requirements.
Tribe assistance - Specific tribes have contracted with MILS to provide additional legal services for their citizens.
Conflicts - MILS will check for potential conflicts of interest, and if these are in place will instead provide referrals to other services.
