What is LawHelp Interactive?
LawHelp Interactive (or LHI) creates free legal documents. To create a legal document, you have to answer the questions in the interview and your answers are used to create your document. LawHelp Interactive forms are currently available in over 35 states and some of these forms are available in Spanish as well as Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.
Where can I find forms for my state?
If you are looking for a particular form in your language and your state, please visit LawHelp Interactive and click on the “find forms” button. We are working with our partners to increase the number of interviews in other languages, and if you cannot find a form in the language you need, you may need to contact the Court or a legal aid organization for help.
