State-by-State

Please find state-by-state links to state court self-help webpages and YouTube channels below. State court self-help web pages can serve as a back-bone to self-help services in the counties, providing access to uniform, comprehensive information that helps litigants, court staff, lawyers and community service providers "stay on the same page" about procedural information and standardized forms. Approximately 20% of the states now offer full statewide coverage of one-on-one court based self-help services through either county level staffing, or in the the case of Alaska and Utah, through a statewide telephone helpline modeled after the elder law and legal aid hotlines. See legalhotlines.org for more information about hotlines, and lawhelp.org for a directory of legal aid webpages that work in tandem with many of the legal aid hotlines.
