Michigan Legal Help

DTDL has partnered with Michigan Legal Help to house the Eaton County Legal Self-Help Center, located at the Adult Services desk in the library. Adult services staff are all trained Navigators for the Michigan Legal Help website. Patrons can stop by the adult desk or make an appointment to receive:

  • A dedicated laptop for access to the Michigan Legal Help website and related resources while inside the library.
  • A high speed internet connection, printing, and scanning capabilities.
  • Assistance using the Michigan Legal Help website and accompanying library resources.
While Navigators cannot give legal advice, they can answer questions about court practices and processes, help visitors locate and complete the court-approved forms available on the website, and find referrals to lawyers and community service providers.

Currently, the MLH website has legal information about family law matters; personal safety; housing issues; money and debt; public assistance; income tax; crime, traffic, and ID; employment; end of life planning; education; immigration; farmworker issues; and going to court.
