LAO Newsroom

Legal Aid Online now available

Posted on: Friday, October 19, 2012

Legal Aid Online is now back online after being briefly unavailable. Please be advised that payments normally scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 18 have been delayed and will be deposited into lawyers’ accounts on Monday, Oct. 22.

There is no requirement to re-submit any accounts – all previously-submitted accounts will still be processed. Documents submitted to LAO through iFAX are currently being processed and delivered to the appropriate recipient now that the system is back online.

This issue was a result of a power source failure and is unrelated to hardware problems the portal was experiencing earlier this week. The power source was replaced to bring the site back online.

LAO thanks you for your patience and understanding, and apologizes for the inconvenience.
