MI Free Legal Answers

Low-income residents of some counties can now get legal help through a new online tool. MI Free Legal Answers operates like an online legal aid clinic, allowing low-income people to get answers to non-criminal legal questions by logging onto the site from any device at any time.

Visitors to the site who earn less than 200% of the federal poverty limit—about $49,200 for a family of four—can post up to three questions per year to the site and receive answers from licensed Michigan attorneys. Visitors can ask about any non-criminal matter, including questions about divorce, child custody, bankruptcy, credit problems, landlords, land contracts, and more. Attorneys in the program will not represent visitors in court or prepare legal documents, but they will direct users to appropriate legal aid clinics, self-help guides, and other resources.
