When We Cannot Help.

MILS cannot help with all legal issues. MILS is a partner in a comprehensive network of legal resources. These partner programs empower Michigan residents with confidence and knowledge to address legal challenges.

For many Michigan law issues, MichiganLegalHelp.org can help you with your legal problem by providing forms and educational materials.

In addition, regional legal aid programs can potentially help low-income individuals. Call 888-783-8190 for the southern half of the state. Please visit www.lsnm.org to find the correct office to call for the northern half of the state.

For those who do not qualify for legal aid, the State Bar of Michigan offers a modest-means program at lrs.michbar.org/LRS-Info/Modest-Means-Program and a low cost referral program at (800) 968-0738.
