Not everyone can afford to hire a lawyer immediately when something bad happens. Sometimes you need a little legal advice before you can even decide whether or not a lawyer is necessary. If you are thinking about going through a divorce, filing for bankruptcy, or you are wondering how to make a will or start a nonprofit, you can find free legal help online. Here are three sources for free legal information.
- Legal research websites. There are several research websites that you can access to read articles written by real lawyers, and guides to everything from creating a will, to workers compensation. Before you throw down a lot of money to get the counsel of a lawyer, you can use these websites to help you better understand the situation that you are in, and the potential legal outcomes.
- Legal term dictionary. While using the legal research websites, you may stumble across legal terms that are not entirely clear to you. If a list of legal terms could be of use in your quest for free legal advice, then you can use a legal term dictionary to help. Terms such as “administrator cum testamento annexo,” “advance directive,” or “affidavit,” are explained simply so that you can better understand legal documents and laws.
- Legal advice websites. Legal advice websites are slightly different from legal research websites. Advice websites allow you to ask a question and get answers, sometimes from real lawyers. You can also look up a specific question and see what one or more lawyers have concluded when weighing in.
