Struggling with past due child support? Just Released! A toolkit for managing your child support arrears. There are articles to explain options and process, common questions, an interview to help you fill in the forms, and step-by-step instructions.
This toolkit tells you about your options if you owe a lot of back child support (called “arrears”). It can also tell you about your options if your child’s other parent owes back child support and asks the court for a payment plan and discharge of of arrears.

Michigan's ‪#‎expungement‬ laws recently changed so that more people may be eligible to set aside their convictions. Use our interview to find out if you qualify for a fresh start. http://goo.gl/RWnt8w
Setting aside a conviction is the process that removes a certain conviction from your public criminal record. This is sometimes called an “expungement.” This article gives an overview of setting aside an adult conviction.

Two Michigan Supreme Court Justices talk about the importance of legal services, including MichiganLegalHelp.org.
A goal of our legal system is that residents have access to it regardless of their ability to pay, the justices write.

Feedback Friday: We love to hear from our visitors! Here's what someone had to say recently: "I thank you people very much. I had no money for legal services but once i found the Michigan legal help website you made things a whole lot easier to understand and the tool kits you have with all the forms and the interviews made things so much easier to present to the court. I did prevail in the court case and i was very proud to be able to stand up for my rights. Without your help i would have never known where to begin. Again, I thank all the people that make this service available."

Thanks for letting us know, and we're so happy we could #help.

New year, new name: have you been considering a name change for yourself or your child? If so, we have simplified the process for you by creating a simple interview to help you complete the forms. There are also informational articles explaining how legal name changes happen.
This toolkit tells you about changing your name, your child’s name, or your family’s last name.
