Q: I'm trying to get legal aid help with my divorce. How do I go about doing it? I have very low income..
A: If you are in West Michigan, go to the Legal Aid of Western Michigan website and click on "I Need Help." You will participate in a online screening tool to see if you are eligible for assistance.

A: You should contact Lakeshore Legal Aid for assistance. If you do not qualify, consider an attorney who may help you on a limited scope representation. This may be an alternative if you have an uncontested divorce, limited to no property to divide, and no children/custody issues.
