The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland recently created a self-help section on its website to begin providing tools to people who must go to court on their own without the help of an attorney. The tools currently available can help people with the following:
- Completing a poverty affidavit to request a waiver of court filing fees
- Sealing a criminal record
- Completing health care directives (living will and health care power of attorney)
- Accessing the Cuyahoga County Child Support Portal for information about child support orders
Keep checking the Cleveland Legal Aid website for more self-help tools in the coming months. If you have questions, attend one of Legal Aid’s free brief advice clinics. You can find a list of upcoming clinic dates and locations here.
