Resources for those not represented by an attorney

Michigan Legal Help
Michigan Legal Help is a website developed by the Michigan court system to provide free assistance to parties handling their legal problems without an attorney. Rather than having to find the correct court forms to file in your case, Michigan Legal Help will take you through an interactive interview using straight-forward questions and then put your answers into the correct format. With Michigan Legal Help you can prepare a complaint to start a case, an answer to a complaint if you have been named as a Defendant, or a motion for various steps along the way in a case.
