Our Guide to Legal Help has been translated to Spanish. You may want to use la Guía de ayuda legal if you need to find:
Forms and information about your legal issue
Contact information for organizations and courts
Finding a Lawyer
After you answer questions about your income and identify your legal problem, the Guide may give you contact information for your local Legal Aid office (no-cost lawyers) if you are eligible for their services. If you are not eligible for Legal Aid, the Guide may give you contact information for the Counsel and Advocacy Law Line, and/or a link to the State Bar of Michigan website to search for a private lawyer.
Forms and Information
You may also want to use the Guide if you are looking for forms or information about your legal issue. If the Michigan Legal Help website has resources for your issue, the Guide will direct you to articles, Do-It-Yourself form tools to create the forms you need, and instructions.
Organizations and Courts
The Guide may also provide links to organizations tailored to your legal problem, such as foreclosure housing counselors, mediation services, government agencies, and domestic violence shelters. It will also give you contact information for your local courts.
