Eviction Help

If you have received a Notice to Vacate or a Citation to be removed from your home or evicted, you may be able to get legal assistance through the resources on this page. It is important to act as quickly as possible if you already received a notice.

To apply for free legal assistance through the Houston Volunteer Lawyers, please use this online intake or you may call HVL at (713) 228-0735.

Stop TX Eviction Portal

Do you live in Texas and can’t afford your rent? We are here to help. Stop TX Eviction is a collaboration between the three main legal aid providers in Texas (Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, Lone Star Legal Aid, and Legal Aid of Northwest Texas) and the state legal aid support center, Texas Legal Services Center, with generous funding from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation.
