What's New on MLH: End of 2014 Edition

What's New on MLH: End of 2014 Edition

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Happy new year, everyone! Here's a quick year-end report on what's new at Michigan Legal Help as we say goodbye to 2014: 

  • We have three new toolkits launching this month: Name Change, Stepparent Adoption, and Managing Child Support Debt. Also, I Need a Quitclaim Deed to Transfer Real Property launched in the last month or so.  Each of these toolkits comes with informational articles, common questions, an interactive online interview, and checklists of instructions.
  • Our Income Tax toolkits are updated for the new tax year! Don't forget that these include links to lists of places where low income people can get their taxes prepared for free.
  • We continue to add new content to ayudalegaldemichigan.org and we have LiveHelp available in Spanish.
  • We have completed an evaluation of the efficacy of the divorce interview and learned a lot about Michigan Legal Help as well as self-represented divorce litigants generally. We're still putting the finishing touches on the report, but we'll be publishing it soon.
  • Please continue to help us spread the word about Michigan Legal Help. You can order PR materials to distribute in your community on the PR Materials page of the website - these are now available in English and Spanish!
  • What have people been saying about Michigan Legal Help? Here is some feedback we've gotten from users: "Thank you for making the help available at no cost." "This site was amazing it has truly helped me. Thank you so much!" "A very sad time for me, but this was so helpful as I am an hourly person and it is hard to get downtown. I am grateful for this service and it was very user friendly."

Thanks, everyone, for making 2014 a great year - we're looking forward to an even more productive and exciting year in 2015!
