Welcome to Michigan Legal Help

The Michigan Legal Help website was created to help people who have to handle simple civil legal problems without a lawyer. There are articles you can read to learn about a specific area of the law and toolkits to help you prepare to represent yourself in court. Some forms are completed automatically once you answer simple questions. The Michigan Legal Help website does not provide legal advice, and it is not a substitute for having a lawyer. If you need more help, you can search the website for a lawyer or community services in your area. The website does not cover all areas of law, but we are adding more information all the time. Please tell us what you think and let us know if we helped and how we can improve this site. For more information, watch the welcome video or read the help instructions.
