Welcome to the Self-Help Center

The self-help center was created to help you handle simple legal problems on your own—without a lawyer. Information you can read or listen to and videos you can watch will help you learn about the law or get ready to go to court. Sample letters and forms will help you with problems you may be having with a landlord or a bill collector. Online classrooms will help you make important end of life planning decisions and get the legal documents you decide you need.

To begin, choose a topic from the list below that is most like the problem you need to solve. If you do not find what you are looking for today—check back. We are adding more information all the time.

The self-help center is not legal advice and is not a substitute for a lawyer. Giving you forms or information does not mean we are your lawyer. If you need more help, click “Apply online in English” or “Solicite ayuda en español” or call Legal Aid Line at: (888) 534-1432.
