Legal Help

The self-help website provided by the Kansas Judicial Branch is intended to help you find legal assistance and information, work with an attorney, and represent yourself in some legal matters.

The Kansas Bar Association's lawyer referral service provides answers to many questions such as whether to hire a lawyer, how to find a lawyer, services available to the public and the potential fees and costs involved.

Kansas Legal Services provides resources, links and several hotlines to help find the legal assistance you need. In addition, Kansas Legal Services provides civil legal advice and representation at no cost or at reduced fees to income eligible individuals. The Kansas Legal Services legal forms page also provides access to various legal forms and includes a simple interactive process for completing divorce and adult name change forms.

The Washburn Law Clinic provides free legal services to members of the community who cannot afford to hire private attorneys. (Eligibility is based on income.) KU Law's Legal Aid Clinic also provides legal services to low income clients in Lawrence Municipal Court and Douglas County District Court.
