Ohio Legal Help

Ohio Legal Help is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2018 to help all Ohioans access the civil justice system. We provide plain language legal help information, interactive self-help tools and connections to local legal and community resources that can help people resolve their legal issues.

Ohio Bar Association Legal Help page is a directory of articles and some videos organized by topic, for example Family Relations, Consumer Protection, Housing and Real Estate.   The articles or videos cover specific subjects within each topic.  Information is succinct and kept up to date.  Links to legal forms are not provided. 

Legal Aid Society of Cleveland Self Help page provides both downloadable brochures on a variety of topics as well as answers to common questions relating to those topics.  Answers may include links to other agencies, contact phone numbers, and when applicable a description how to manage a legal or administrative process. 

Southeastern Ohio Legal Services Get Help page provides detailed information organized by topic, and in some cases link to county-specific documents. Includes direct access to appropriate forms and detailed instructions.  Note that forms and documents automatically download as PDF files rather than opening directly on the screen.
