Michigan Legal Help Updates - Fall, 2013

Michigan Legal Help Updates - Fall, 2013

Tuesday, September 24, 2013
As we head into fall, a beautiful season here in Michigan, we at Michigan Legal Help wanted to share a few updates:
 
  • Our new mobile site is launched! Since over 30% of people who visit Michigan Legal Help are using a mobile device, we wanted them to have a great experience. On 9/1/13 we launched our much improved mobile site - check it out on your smart phone or tablet!
  • LiveHelp: Starting October 1, LiveHelp will be available from 11am - 3pm. LiveHelp is a chat-based feature where website visitors can get help using the website. They can also get answers to their legal information questions, but not legal advice.
  • Our User's Guide is now available online. If someone is just sitting down to use the website, this can help them understand it quickly and easily.
  • Organizations and Courts can now order PR Materials online as well. If you would like some cards, brochures, or flyers about Michigan Legal Help to pass out, we will happily send them to you!
  • Custody Toolkits are now available for both Plaintiffs and Defendants who are not married to one another, but need custody, parenting time, and child support orders. These include interviews to create complaints and answers/counterclaims for custody.
  • Two new Self-Help Centers are opening this fall, one in Monroe County (on October 7th) and one in Marquette County.
  • We celebrated our first birthday on August 17, 2013! We also hit a milestone shortly afterwards on September 15th - one million pageviews.

Thanks for all of your continued support! As always, we love feedback - so please feel free to drop us a line if you have suggestions or comments about Michigan Legal Help and how we can better serve the self-represented people in Michigan.
